Here Comes The Rain.

Here Comes The Rain, or Chatti ya Dini, is an absolute must-see film by Bahijj Hojeij. It follows the story of a man’s release back into society after 20 years of detention. The acting, direction and cinematography are all absolutely stunning and the film’s subject matter is one of our great unexplored scars. The 17,000 people who remain “disappeared” after the Lebanese Civil War have suffered from the collective amnesia of our society. This film looks at what it means to reinsert someone into society after they’ve been forgotten or, even worse, remembered as they were 20 years ago. It is a truly heartbreaking and inspirational film, and I think everyone should watch it.
