L’Autre côté de novembre (The Other Side of November)

Drama, dir. Maryanne Zéhil, 2016

Filmed in Quebec and Lebanon, starring Arsinée Khanjian and Pascale Bussières

Depending on whether she succeeds in immigrating to Canada in November 1974, a Lebanese woman has two possible and entirely different destinies. Will she be Lea, a neurosurgeon in Montreal who has never had children? Or will she be Layla, a seamstress and mother in her native village? In either case, this fifty-year-old, who has experienced a recent and disturbing loss of memory, is haunted by the memory of her childhood friend Samira.
