After being shortly detained at Beirut airport on Sunday, French-Lebanese Ziad Doueiri appeared at this time in entrance of a Lebanese army courtroom and was launched on bail. Doueiri, whose newest film “The Insult”, gained the Venice Movie Competition’s finest actor prize, was being interrogated for alleged collaboration with Israel throughout the filming of “The Assault”. In keeping with Doueiri, no expenses had been filed towards him and he acknowledged that he was respectfully handled by the authorities.
Lots of people are arguing over the legality of his arrest however to me the problem is just not a authorized one particularly that Doueiri’s film was nominated to characterize Lebanon on the Oscars subsequent yr and he has been touring out and in of Lebanon for the previous three years. Somebody was clearly making an attempt to ship him a message however I believe it backfired as a result of Doueiri’s arrest and his newest film are everywhere in the media domestically and internationally.
