My Father Is Still a Communist
Documentary, director: Ahmed Ghossein, Lebanon/United Arab Emirates, 2011, 32 min., Arab. with En. ST
All that is left from the relationship between Rachid and Mariam, Ahmed Ghossein’s parents, is a large number of radio cassettes sent as love letters during the Lebanese civil war. Using these tapes together with images from the present and the past, “My Father is Still a Communist” creates a unique space where an intimate diary is transformed into a work of collective memory.
