In search of oneself

Fiasco Nicolas Khoury

In Fiasco, Nicolas Khoury turns the camera on himself and his family to reflect on life. Video journals recorded from a young age are mixed with new footage to capture the loving but sometimes dysfunctional relationship that binds him to his mother and sister, years after the death of his father. The camera never ventures too far from the surroundings of his home, searching answers to questions that he’s been trying to untangle around his sexuality since adolescence. In doing so, Nicolas, with much humour and derision, challenges the social boundaries set by his family and the Lebanese society in which he lives. His rebellion is assertive yet gentle, persistent but never dramatic. (Programming Collective)
