Anthony Chidiac has some time to talk to us about his first feature, a psychological study on the self, Room for a Man. After winning the Grand Prize at Montreal RIDM 2017, we have the chance to see Room for a Man for the first time in Europe, in the beautiful setting of TDF20.

Room for a Man: A young Lebanese filmmaker who shares an apartment in Beirut with his mother and pet dog sets about reconstructing his identity by renovating his bedroom. However, a visit from Syrian workers, a family album, and a Skype call stir the still waters of an abused life, marked by a desire to flee but with nowhere to go. An intimate confessional essay that presents cinema as a tool of survival, resistance and openness.
