The Lebanese Rocket Society at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival

The Lebanese Rocket Society by Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige will have its MENA Premiere at the 2012 Doha Tribeca Film Festival.

In the 60s, Lebanon launched the Middle East's first rocket, and the nation celebrated its involvement in the international space race. In bringing this forgotten episode to light, this film revives Arab dreams buried since the Arab-Israeli conflict of 1967 - a reflection of the reawakening of hopes in the wake of the Arab Spring.
