Ahmad Ghossein is a filmmaker and video artist known for his brilliant way to use personal narrative to serve a political discourse.
Following his graduation in Theatre Art from the Lebanese University, he won the Best Director Prize at the Beirut International Film Festival 2004 for his short film Operation N… He quickly draws the interest of the art world and gets the opportunity to present his works in numerous prestigious institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Berlin International Film Festival, the International Short Film Festival in Oberhausen, the New Museum in New York, the Kunsthall in Oslo, the Home Works in Beirut, the Nikolaj Kunsthal in Copenhagen and the Béton salon in Paris.
Among his rich production, one can distinguish the short film entitled My father is still a communist, accompanied by photograph archives and audio tapes.
Again, the personal nature of the work feeds the historical dimension of the work and contributes to provide a human dimension to the story told, less distant from the present. Ghossein offers the viewer the opportunity to witness the evolution of a relationship within a couple, in a challenging political context.
