About the Director: 

Pierre studied Theater and Communication Arts at Notre Dame University and screenwriting, acting and directing in the German Lebanese University.
Between 2001 and 2005 he got involved in the production of TV commercials, TV series and reality shows in the Middle East. He moved to Dubai in 2005 where he launched a 1st AD career, gaining invaluable experience for four years next to high-standard international directors on big budget commercials.

His breakthrough as a director was in 2006 with “It’s About Time”, a short documentary that was an Internet hit with over 1.5 million views and 12 international film festivals. His second documentary ‘The Lebanon I Dream Of…’ was another Internet hit in 2009 where hundreds of blogs, forums, media and social groups have exchanged the videos and discussed the content.

Film synopsis: 
A conflict as old as Adam; it is the cause of every war, every greed and every agony; it is the dualism between you and your own self, between your desires and your fears, what you want and what you must. This movie is a reflection for every spectator to identify with, to observe what he/she is really doing to him/herself.
