    For the past five decades, Lebanon, once the jewel of the Middle East, has been engulfed by strife, chaos and bloodshed. In his incisive documentary, Israeli director Duki Dror compares this small nation to an active volcano that explodes periodically, destabilizing everything in its path. Using graphic file footage and informative interviews with Lebanese, Palestinians, Israelis and Americans, Dror draws a vivid portrait of a country in crisis. Caught up in the chaos are the Lebanese civilians. Consisting of different sects, religions, and ethnicities, the Lebanese people are now writing their own history, in a string of political assassinations, massacres, and betrayals.

    SYNOPSIS
    In 1982, Sero, a young Kurdish boy from a Syrian border village, attends school for the first time. His new teacher from Damascus forbids use of the Kurdish language and preaches hate of the Zionist enemy, the Jews. This confuses Sero as his long-time neighbours are a lovable Jewish family. As Sero becomes involved in dangerous pranks with his friends and dreams of having a television, he experiences the effect of the violence and nationalism surrounding him. Beautifully shot and told with gentle humour and satire, ‘Neighbours’ explores the tyranny of dictatorship through a child’s eyes. How much friendship and love is possible in times of repression and brutality?

    SYNOPSIS:
    Some 7,000 “Hasidim” (ultra-Orthodox Jews) live in the affluent Montréal borough of Outremont. After settling there more than 70 years ago, the Hasidim are a rapidly growing minority group, representing a challenge for certain members of the local French-speaking Québécois. The Francophone elite fear the massive influx of this group, which according to some, refuses to integrate. This revealing documentary lifts the veil on the practices and traditions of the Hasidic community, while presenting their hopes, fears and expectations. Successfully avoiding clichés, the film conveys the perspectives of both sides in an effort to discover both what divides and unites them.
