In the early 60’s, during the cold war and the apex of Pan Arabism, a group of utopian students and researchers enters the race to space and create the Lebanese Rocket Society. Sometimes, and specially nowadays, dreams can overtake a tormented history…

MUBI's take

Subtitled “The Strange Tale of the Lebanese Space Race,” this surprising, stranger-than-fiction documentary from Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige gives an overlooked true story its due. Inspiring, against-all-odds, and finely assembled from film archives and newsreels.
