Description
 
From Muslims in Bosnia-Herzegovina to Christians in Lebanon, director Jacques Debs shows us two groups long forgotten or overlooked. For centuries, Muslims in Europe and Christians in the Middle East have lived side by side in the old Ottoman Empire, despite experiencing periodic setbacks, failures, and in the worst cases, genocide. Debs uses his personal story as a Christian from Lebanon as a starting point, then illuminates the complexities of the modern Mediterranean area, making the film at once personal and universal. "...a thrilling journey..." (Le Monde). In English, French, or German with English subtitles.
