23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
This Little Father Obsession
Accompanied by his father, the film’s main protagonist and director sets out in search of a distant relative. But all the filmmaker sees in his future is the end: He is infertile and gay, the last member of his family’s youngest generation, and their family home in Beirut is slated for demolition. The film records the various ways he and the people around him deal with this situation.
Sélim Mourad (1987) studied film at the Saint Joseph University in Beirut. In 2016, he debuted with his feature-length documentary This Little Father Obsession, which was banned in Lebanon because of its look at the taboo subject of homosexuality
