Tramontane 2016
Tramontane can mean “northern wind”, but is also the name of the lead character; in Arabic it is Rabih. The blind Lebanese singer and musician Barakat Jabbour plays Rabih, a young man who is – like the actor himself – blind and a talented musician. When Rabih is invited to tour Europe with his group,he goes to the authorities to request a passport but they inform him that his current ID might be a forgery. Rabih thus asks his mother, Samar (Julia Kassar), to help find his birth records so he can apply for new papers, but they seem to be missing too. Not having a birth certificate isn’t as unusual in Lebanon as it might be elsewhere, since many official records were lost in the country’s various wars. But when Mom admits she’s unable to do a blood test to establish their familial relationship, things start to unravel...
