Michel Ghosn, Lebanese producer

"We lack the ability to distribute our films in Arab countries"

Michel Ghosn presents his newly produced film, A Man of Honor.

He describes film production in Lebanon, where funding from businessmen and shooting authorisations are hard to obtain. He speaks of Egyptian distributors' monopoly in Arab film distribution and of their boycotting films made in the rest of the region, although Egyptian cinemas show western films and the Egyptian public is the largest in the region.

 

Interview in French.
