    A film by Jean Chamoun. (Arabic with English subtitles. 102 minutes, 2000.)

    To escape the civil war between Christians and Muslims, a Lebanese family moves from the countryside to Beirut, only to find themselves caught in an equally dangerous situation. Documentary filmmaker Jean Khalil Chamoun’s first fictional film skillfully employs archival footage to convey the struggles his adolescent protagonist and his family must confront in war-torn Beirut. As he creates a harrowing overview of the conflict that left his country in physical and moral disarray, this talented filmmaker leaves a more in-depth look at the underlying factors of the Lebanese Civil War.

    THE INSTRUMENTS:



    Tar: Tar is the most widely used plucked instrument in Iran today. It is a fretted lute with six strings, three of steel and 3 of brass. It has a long neck and a double bellied sound box, over which is stretched a thin sheep skin membrane. The tunings of the strings are changed according to the dastgah that is being played, and the twenty six frets are movable. Finally, the strings are plucked with a brass plectrum.



    Tombak: Tombak is the chief percussion instrument of Persian classical music. It is a one-headed drum that is carved of a single piece of wood, and is open on the bottom. Across the larger, upper part of the body is stretched a sheepskin membrane that is glued into place. Thus, the instrument cannot be tuned; the performer prepares it for a piece by warming the membrane over a heater
