Filmmaker Pierre Dawalibi gave a lecture about his latest movie Him Himself at LAU on Friday May 16th.
At the lecture that kicked off at 5 pm in Sage Hall G001, Dawalibi screened his film and discussed its artistic message.
While some students felt that the latent messages in the film were difficult to understand, Dawalibi stressed that his film actually dealt with notions that are relative to each and every person like beauty and success, saying that the latter is a “big lie”.
“As much you can say it was a nice lecture, I believe it was a very challenging and deep lecture for all of us,” said Nour Ghaddar a communication arts student.
The highlight of the lecture for some was “the fact that every one admitted that they wear different masks every day,” Tania Majdalani, a communication arts student, said.
Dawalibi, who is passionate about his job, says that he dedicates his life to making movies that can ” make the world a better place.”
The film focuses on how society shapes an individual by repressing the id and molding the super ego.
