Running time TBC / Cert. U
In the 1960s, Lebanon was the first Arab country to join the space race.
Led by physics teacher Manoug Manougian, a small group of students from the University Haigazian began rocket tests with the dream of scientific discovery and exploration.
Who were these young people? Why did they stop? And, most importantly, why all this was forgotten?
This documentary screening was followed by a Q&A with director Dir. Khalil Joreign and curator and writer Omar Kholeif.
