Overview

The destruction wrought in Lebanon during the war of 2006 is seen through unexpected eyes in this fusion of drama and documentary from filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige. The internationally famous French actress Catherine Deneuve (playing herself) is visiting Beirut and wants to see the aftermath of the 2006 conflict first hand. Deneuve's driver, a loyal fan and fellow actor named Rabih Mroue, is more than willing to help, and together they spend the day exploring the city, from the city center through the village of Bint El Jbeil (which Mroue calls home) to the Israeli border. While Deneuve is protected by a bodyguard, the guided tour presents more danger than she expects, with fighter jets buzzing overhead and land band dotting a few side streets, as Mroue makes sure she witnesses both the beauty of Lebanon and the wreckage battles with Israel have left behind. Je Veux Voir was screened as part of the Un Certain Regard series at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.
