Overview

Lebanese filmmaker Randa Chahal Sabbag directs the drama La Cerf Volant (The Kite). Teenaged Lamia (Flavia Bechara) lives in southern Lebanon near the border to Israel. One day she lets her kite fly into the Israeli side and attempts to retrieve it. She then meets Israeli Arab border guard Youssef (Maher Bsaibes), who works in a tower overlooking both sides of the barbed-wire fence separating the countries. Her family is outraged, so they send her off to marry her cousin on the other side of the border. Lamia refuses to sleep with her new husband, instead maintaining an interest in Youssef. The Kite was shown at the 2003 Venice Film Festival.
