Zugzwang (Lebanon)

dir. Perla Joe Maalouli, The Holy Spirit University of Kaslik A satirical journey that takes us through the mind cells of Maria Sikias, a Lebanese woman who’s going through a casting session with a German casting director. With each emotion requested, her subconscious is revealed, haunted by her reality and by the system that we live in as human beings. Perla Joe Maalouli grew up in Lebanon. She graduated with a Bachelor’s in Interior Design, but then decided to study Cinematography.
