A small incident between a Christian Lebanese and a Palestinian refugee is blown up to countless dimensions. Politicians and the press are plunging, and soon a whole nation is involved.
The Insult provides insight into Lebanese history and the inflamed relationship between different cultures, something that makes it current far beyond Lebanon's borders.
The Insult was Oscar-nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. Ziad Doueiri is an outspoken director who often provokes his films and speeches. His previous film The Attack (2012) was banned in many Arab countries. He is also known for his collaboration with Quentin Tarantino, including at Pulp Fiction.
