‘ENOUGH! Lebanon’s Darkest Hour,’ the winner of the Movie That Matters Award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, and one that has received the Award for Excellence for Feature Documentary at IndieFEST, as well as officially being selected for the Cairo International Film Festival, will be launched in Australia on the Wednesday 1  December at Hoyts Entertainment Quarter in Sydney, Australia!

A second premiere event will be held for this movie at the Event Cinemas in Parramatta on Thursday 2 December 2021. The Melbourne premiere will be held at The Jam Factory on Saturday 4 December. Other screenings are also scheduled around the country for the rest of December this year.

The film is directed by a Lebanese-Australian filmmaker, Daizy Gedeon. It tackles many of Lebanon’s challenging issues that have caused it to erupt into violence and, only last month, to become involved in a regional, diplomatic crisis also.

Ms Gedeon’s access to some of the country’s most prominent political figures is unprecedented. Through incisive interviews with whistle-blowers and experts over the past 5 years, she offers damning evidence of state-level, criminal corruption throughout the country.

Ms Gedeon interviewed ex-Prime Minister Saad Hariri while he was still in office on July 2018.

Featured interviews include Ex-Prime Minister Saad Hariri, MP Gebran Bassil, Samir Geagea, Mohammed Fneich and the much-maligned Governor of the Central Bank, Riad Salameh. The former Finance Ministry Director General Alain Bifani and Thanassis Cabaniss, Senior Fellow and Director of The Century Foundation in New York, also share many revealing truths.

Ms Gedeon has just returned from a four-month international festival circuit tour in Europe, Beirut and the US. Whilst overseas, she urged the 16-million-strong Lebanese diaspora to vote in next year’s elections, which could potentially make-or-break the future of the tiny Mediterranean country.

Ms Gedeon says: “We need everyone to get out and vote…especially the expats.”

The film was recently screened in Beirut to a group of ambassadors, hosted by the Australian Ambassador, Rebekah Grindlay. It also screened in Washington DC to a sell-out audience including members of US Government, World Bank and the IMF.
