Dirty Difficult Dangerous: Wins Europa Cinema Labels Award

‘Dirty Difficult Dangerous’ Wins Europa Cinema Labels Award

Wissam Charaf’s love story between two refugees living in Lebanon was voted best European film in the Venice Days sidebar.

The feature is a love story set in Beirut between two migrants: Mehdia, an Ethiopian migrant domestic worker, and Ahmed, a Syrian refugee who struggles to survive by selling scrap metal. With nothing to lose, the pair seizes the chance to flee the city in a desperate attempt to start over elsewhere.

Along with the prize, Dirty Difficult Dangerous will receive promotional support from Europa Cinemas Label, an association of art house cinema exhibitors from across Europe, in its theatrical rollout.

Dirty Difficult Dangerous was produced by Charlotte Vincent and Katia Khazak, with Marco Valerio Fusco, Micaela Fusco and Pierre Saraf as co-producers.

The film is an Aurora Films production, co-produced by Intramovies and Né à Beyrouth Films. Intramovies are selling the film worldwide.
