Mai Masri


70 minutes

Arabic with English subtitles
    WINNER: Best Documentary, 2008 Valladolid International Film Festival—Spain

NOMINATED: Muhr Award, Dubai International Film Festival

On July 12 of 2006, Israel launched a massive attack against Lebanon after two Israeli soldiers were captured by Hezbollah resistance fighters who demanded the release of Lebanese detainees from Israeli prisons.

From award-winning director Mai Masri [Children of Shatila and Frontiers of Dreams and Fears], 33 Days chronicles the efforts of theatre director Sharif Abdunnur, graphic designer Sharif Bibi, journalist Fadia Baszzi and Mariam Al-Bassam, director of the news desk at New TV, as they try to provide emergency aid, report current news of the conflict and help Lebanese children process the violence and destruction they see around them on a daily basis. Masri's film is full of compassion and humanity even as it records the horrible devastation of war.
