The Valley wins the best director award at Abu Dhabi

Ghassan Salhab was awarded the "Best Director Of The Arab World" prize for his latest film The Valley at the Abu Dhabi International Film Festival.

Following a car accident on a lone mountain road, a middle-aged man loses his memory. Drenched in blood, he continues to walk along the deserted path. Further down the road, he encounters people with engine trouble and helps them get their car running again. They are reluctant to leave him stranded, so they take him home to their large estate in the Bekaa valley, a place where production is not only agricultural, and a place he may never leave again....

The Valley stars Carole Abboud, Fadi Abi Samra, Mounzer Baalbaki, Carlos Chahine, Yumna Marwan, Aouni Kawas, Rodrigue Sleiman, Ahmad Ghossein and will be released in cinemas next year.
