The Lebanese Rocket Society theatrical release (01/02/2013)

The Lebanese Rocket Society will be released in Lebanese theatres on April 11 and in France on May 1 

From 1960 to 1966, a space project was undertaken in Lebanon. Several rockets, which became larger and more powerful with time, were launched from the hills surrounding Beirut by a group of scientists, university students and army experts. This group, led by Manoug Manougian, was called: The Lebanese Rocket Society.

Directed by Joana & Khalil Joreige, The Lebanese Rocket Society was part of the Toronto International Film Festival selection and was awarded the best feature documentary award at the 2012 Doha Tribeca Film Festival
