    Eccomi…Eccoti (Here I am…Here you are) (2017) dir. Raed Rafei 3 p.m. Sunday, June 28, 2020 FREE with suggested $5 donation RSVP for Streaming Link "Eccomi…Eccoti" unfolds as a virtual road trip navigating between Italy and Lebanon. Conditioned to live in a long-distance relationship with his partner because of strict European visa regulations, the director patches together the shared moments in an attempt to create a possible day-to-day reality for the couple. With a lyrical, ambient soundscape set atop a dreamy visual style oscillating between still photography and moving images, the film explores what it means to be gay in contemporary Beirut, and the existential discomfort that blocks one from reaching a sense of completeness. Italy, Lebanon / 68 minutes / Arabic, French, Italian and English with English subtitles Presented by ArteEast, in partnership with the Arab American National Museum, Arab Film and Media Institute and Cinetopia Festival as part of the Arab Film Series Online
