Martyr

1h 24m โ€ข Drama, LGBTQ+ โ€ข 2017

For Hassane, life has stopped making sense. All he has left is a close group of friends, brought together by a shared sense of marginalisation. In an effort to shake off the pressures of a desperate family situation, Hassane loses himself in the azure waters of his favourite swimming spot on Beirutโ€™s rocky shore. However, despite innocent intentions, Hassaneโ€™s actions result in a tsunami that engulfs his friends, family and the community around him. Heralding an exciting new voice in Lebanese cinema, MARTYR is a heartfelt farewell to the beauty and sensuality of life, youth, friendship, and love.
