A Perfect Day - 2005 film directed by Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige.  Set in modern Beirut, A Perfect Day tells the "delicate but haunting" (Time Out New York) story of a family still scarred by the Lebanese Civil War that ended 15 years before. Claudia (Julia Kassar) and her grown son, Malek (Ziad Saad), wake up to a typical morning, which quickly sours when the conversation turns to the family's patriarch. Claudia's husband and Malek's father has been missing since the war, and the two debate whether to   have him declared legally dead. Once the decision is made, they move on with their lives in different ways. Directors Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige  continue their exploration of life in postwar Beirut, where ghosts of the past linger among the new buildings of the bustling metropolis. Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the Locarno Film Festival. In Arabic with English subtitles.  Unrated, 88 minutes.
