Jarvis Conservatory will show "The Insult," a courtroom drama that delivers a hard-hitting statement on modern Middle Eastern politics on Saturday April 14, at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $10.
In today's Beirut, an insult blown out of proportions finds Toni, a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee, in court. From secret wounds to traumatic revelations, the media circus surrounding the case puts Lebanon through a social explosion, forcing Toni and Yasser to reconsider their lives and prejudices.
Directed by Ziad Doueiri and starring Adel Karam, Kamel El Basha and Camille Salameh, "The Insult" was nominated for 14 international awards including a 2018 Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
The Jarvis Conservatory is at 1710 Main St., Napa. For details, visit jarvisconservatory.com.
