France and Lebanon | Subtitled | Rated TBC | 110 minutes

Directed by Ziad Doueiri
Starring Adel Karam, Kamel El Basha

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Academy Awards, The Insult is the multi-award winning new work from Lebanese visionary Ziad Doueiri (The Attack). The Insult is a fast-paced, sharp-tongued tour through the complex cultural and political divisions that constitute modern Lebanon.

A Palestinian refugee insults a Lebanese Christian in a heated exchange. In another world, it’s a provocation that might have gone uncontested but not in Lebanon, where even the most passing of gestures has become freighted with outsize meaning. Soon the two men are embroiled in a high-stakes legal battle, whose outcome could have profound implications for the identity and future of the only Arabic democracy in the Middle East.
