The driver could be a Gad el Maleh fan but he better be careful because Gad is not welcome in Lebanon. In fact, his show got cancelled few years back because someone decided to edit Gad’s Wikipedia page and circulate a false picture of him fighting with the Israeli Army. Needless to say, Gad has a lot of fans in Lebanon and a lot of them made the trip to watch him live in Dubai on the 13th and 14th of February.

New Lebanese Cabinet’s Protocol Photo Photoshopped

According to Annahar, Ministers Nohad el Machnouk and Rachid Derbas were late for the first picture and by the time they arrived, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri had left, so they decided to take another picture with all the ministers and someone filling in Berri’s place then photoshop Berri into it.

I have to say I didn’t expect a new government to see the light, and I am quite saddened that we couldn’t break Belgium’s word record of 589 days without a government. That would have been quite the achievement!

Here are few good reads on the new government for those interested:

Uncut Film Festival1

The AUB Cineclub and the Museum Of Censorship Club – AUB are proudly organized The Uncut Film Festival at AUB next week.

Five movies will be screened from Monday till Friday at 6:30pm in the Charles Hostler Auditorium (Sea Side). Everyone is welcome to attend and entrance is free of charge.

Here is the list of the movies and their dates:

Monday 17, February: Syriana by Stephan Gaghan – 2005
Tuesday 18, February: Life of Brian by Terry Jones -1979
Wednesday 19, February: One Man Village (Semaan Bi Day’ia) by Simon El Haber – 2008
Thursday 20, February: Chou Sar? (What Happened?) by De Gaulle Eid – 2009
Friday 21, February: L’inconnu du Lac (Stranger by the Lake) by Alain Guiraudie – 2013

I am personally against any kind of censorship and am fully supportive of this event. I will do my best to make it to at least one of the screenings and meet the people behind this. I love that they picked “Life of Brian”, a movie that probably would have never been approved in Lebanon these days.
