The Biennale College – Cinema staff is extremely happy to announce that Tramontane will have its world premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival in the Semaine de la Critique sidebar!
Here’s the synopsis:
Rabih, a young blind man, lives in a small village in Lebanon. His life unravels when he applies for a passport and discovers that his identification card is a forgery. Traveling across rural Lebanon in search of a record of his own birth, he meets people on the far fringes of society who tell their own stories, open further questions and give him minor clues about his identity. He encounters a nation incapable of telling his, or its own, history.
Tramontane, directed by Vatche Boulghourjian and produced by Caroline Oliveira, is one of the projects selected for the very first workshop of the first edition of Biennale College – Cinema.
