After receiving 5 awards and being nominated for 12 other international ones, Costa Brava, Lebanon will be finally screening in Lebanese movie theaters this September.

This Lebanese movie is the first to be created in the Middle East with environmentally friendly and sustainable development concepts and brings awareness to environmental issues.

It is directed by Mounia Akl and stars Nadine Labaki, Nadia Charbel, and Saleh Bakri. as well as Seana Restom, Geana Restom, Liliane Khoury, François Nour, Youmna Marwan, and Muhyiddin Al Karra.

Launched last year in Venice, the movie tells the story of a family who moved to the mountains to get away from Beirut’s pollution. Without any previous notice, authorities started building a garbage landfill outside of their house.

The family had been working on the house for so many years and put all their money and efforts into it.

To their surprise, they were welcomed to the area with trash on their doorstep along with the consequences of being consumed with garbage.

Early in June of this year, the U.S. film and video distributor Kino Lorber acquired the North American rights to the film after it won numerous prizes and major film festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and the 65th BFI London Film Festival.
