A Hundred Faces for a Single Day

Christian Ghazi’s incendiary, avant-garde masterpiece ends with the send-off, “I don’t care when or how I will die, as long as there are armed men who will continue the march, shaking the earth with their uproar so that the world won’t sleep heavily over the bodies of the laborious, miserable and oppressed men.”

Selected by Artist in Profile Marwa Arsanios, who will introduce the film

The Lebanese documentarian’s films were so politically volatile that authorities burned them all, except for a single 35mm print of A Hundred Faces which was smuggled out of Syria and returned to the filmmaker.
