The Adam Basma Project

Queer Blender

Adam comes from a traditional Muslim family. He left Lebanon as a teenager to pursue his dream of becoming a belly-dancer. The director thus grew up only with the memories her uncle left in the family. Using archive footage, she’s now on a quest to find out who Adam truly was and is.

The Adam Basma project serves as a study for a planned feature debut.
