    • Synopsis
    • We Were Communists is director Maher Abi Samra’s uninhibited examination of the legacy of Lebanon’s civil war. Four men recount stories from the battlefield, their broken dreams and the disillusionment that has resulted as a result of the country’s ongoing crises. Artistically and politically audacious, Abi Samra’s incisive and tender film travels the chimeric and daunting reality of Lebanon’s fractured post-war landscape. – Rasha Salti
