Room for a Man
  • Year2017
  • Duration77 min

Young gay Lebanese filmmaker Anthony Chidiac explores identity and family history, first through discussions with the Syrian builders refurbishing the Beirut apartment he shares with his mother; then by travelling to Argentina with his formerly estranged father. Favouring artful, static camerawork and a yearning voiceover, this hypnotic personal essay meditates on masculinity, sexuality and a lifelong quest for acceptance. (MA)
