A Teddy Award-winning interpretation of a gay man’s past life during the Lebanese civil war


U.S. Premiere

In this Teddy Award winner from Berlinale, Miguel returns to Lebanon after 37 years to reflect on his experience growing up queer during the civil war. Having spent the years since leaving as an out gay man in Spain, Miguel is back to remember the relationships that shaped him as a son, lover, and soldier.

Director Eliane Raheb uses a mixed media approach to deconstruct the documentary form and pull the truth out of her unreliable narrator. In their collaborative effort to recreate, process and illuminate the past, MIGUEL’S WAR achieves a monumental new form of storytelling.

This film will be followed by a Q&A with Miguel Jelelaty Obeid
