My Uncle, The Terrorist

Institute History

  • 2010 Sundance Institute - Arab Fund For Arts and Culture


The film is about me searching for the truth about my uncle, Fouad Shemali, a terrorist for some, and a martyr for others. I will investigate his life through my family, the people who were with him, the ones against him, and the people who can help understand his behavior in the context of the times of the events, in the Lebanese and the international society.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
