GRANDMA, A THOUSAND TIMES

DIRECTOR: Mahmoud Kaabour - LEBANON

Grandma, A Thousand Times is filmmaker Mahmoud Kaabour’s poetic cinematic tribute to his feisty, larger-than-life grandmother. Teta Kaabour is an 83-year-old family matriarch and sharp-witted queen bee of an old Beiruti quarter. In the apartment where she raised six children and 13 grandchildren, she now spends her days smoking Argileh and drinking endless cups of coffee, alone with memories of her beloved violinist husband (who’s been dead for 20 years). Bearing his grandfather’s name as well as his likeness, the filmmaker is clearly his grandmother’s favorite. This affection allows for an intimate portrait comprised of recollections, revelations of closely guarded recipes, and hilarious family observations. Touching without being sentimental, this lyrical study is a testament to the importance of preserving personal histories destined to pass with the people who have lived them. (48 mins.)

Screening with I Could Be Your Grandmother. (19 mins.)

Filmography: Being Osama (04).
