About the Director: 

Born in Daroun-Harissa, Lebanon, in September 8, 1987, Chady has fell in love with films and acting since childhood. While at school, Chady tried to make small films of his own with an old Panasonic camera and started writing scripts for the future not having any kind of experience. Majoring in Radio/TV/Film at Notre Dame University, Louaize, Lebanon, he finds himself surprisingly oriented towards experimental films though he used to write all clear ones. Intending to make a clear and all conscious film, Chady writes the script of Oh the Baptism Oh the Puppet and films it eight months later. Seeking the directing and scriptwriting career, Chady’s plans are to continue his education by pursuing the Masters in Filmmaking after working to raise the college fees and seeking for a scholarship.

Film synopsis: 
Peter is about to direct his first long feature film. Seeking for absolute authenticity in the performance of the actors, he chooses them according to their background and studies their psyche to fit his movie’s characters. Thus it becomes a very easy game to him to manipulate the actors considering that it is something very ordinary to him in his social life. During the process, he speaks to someone about this particular subject, justifies his behavior and talks about the multiple methods of brainwashing that are applied around the world. His assistant director, also his friend, Sally is kind of a shoulder to cry on about the rejection from the girl he loves; Elizabeth. His so-called-friend Mike is the one who hacks the systems and succeeds to pull out information about the actors for Peter to study their characters. However, Peter’s unstoppable addiction to manipulation has lead to an actual tragedy among the actors…
