Vol Libre (1993)

Prix international du vol libre, St Hilaire 1991

I had always dreamed of flying. In 1989, as I was fleeing the war, I did a paragliding internship in France. At that time, the sport was still in its early stages. When I returned to Lebanon, I realized that flying, or living a few moments of freedom, was not exactly an easy task. This is the story of Lebanon’s first paraglider, a black comedy that I share with you in an 18-minute film.
