12 Angry Lebanese

“What kind of a girl saunters in to a maximum security prison and starts telling the inmates what to do? One with a lot of guts—and training.” (Arab Comment)

Zeina Daccache, a powerhouse actress and theater director, spent 15 months working with male inmates in Lebanon’s infamous Roumieh Prison, overseeing their gradual evolution into a cohesive troupe with a common goal: mounting a production of 12 Angry Men. The winner of the People’s Choice Award and Best Arab Documentary at the Dubai International Film Festival, 12 Angry Lebanese is a revealing, engaging, and uplifting look at the benefits of art and performance in the most unlikely places, and a reminder of the commonalities among prisoners everywhere.

Q&A Oct. 12, 7:00: panel of speakers from Rehabilitation Through the Arts, which runs theater programs at Sing Sing and other New York prisons.

Zeina Daccache. 2009. 85 m. NR. Lebanon, Arabic with subtitles.
