Nadi Lekol Nas and the Sursock Museum will be presenting Whispers on Thursday 14 December from 19:00 to 20:30 by Lebanese filmmaker Maroun Baghdadi.


Dir. Maroun Baghdadi, 1980
94', Lebanon/Canada/France

Whispers follows the Lebanese poet Nadia Tueni (1935-1983) on a journey across different regions of war-torn Lebanon. The film depicts the fall of a country struggling to survive and find hope. At every station, between sites filled with poetry and nostalgia for a bygone era, the poet’s dashed dreams and idealized vision of her country coincide with the director’s own.


Maroun Baghdadi (b.1950 - d.1993) was one of the best-known Lebanese filmmakers of his generation. He first studied law and political science at Saint Joseph University in Beirut and the Sorbonne University in Paris. Afterward, he studied cinema at the Institute for High Film Studies in Paris. He returned to Lebanon in 1973 where he produced many short documentary films offering a record of the Civil War. In 1991, he won a Jury Prize at the Cannes International Film Festival for Out of Life.
