Maskoun Trailer (English Version) from Sharif Abdunnur on Vimeo.
The film is about two young directors who come back from the USA to shoot a documentary film about paranormal activity in Lebanon: They hire a crew and Two Celebrity Stars to accompany them on their adventure. After several small sightings the visions become stronger and the mystery turns into a hellish nightmare.
Directed as a cross between documentary and fiction with inserts from news and interviews the film is a violent suspenseful thriller and would be the first of its kind in the Middle East. The movie is a revolution in Arabic cinema as it was shot both in Arabic and in English enabling it to be marketed to an International Audience/Market as well as the Middle East.
