Assistant professor Assad Fouladkar’s award-winning drama When Maryam Spoke Out (2001) about a couple, Maryam and Ziyad, who struggle with Maryam’s infertility and her mother-in-law’s efforts to spoil the marriage, will launch the day devoted to Lebanon. Instructor Dima El Horr’s recent Pret à Porter Imm Ali will follow as part of a series of short films.

The annual 12-day festival, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, is considered among the world’s most prestigious filmmaking events.
