Dungannon Film Club presents Denis Villeneuve's Middle Eastern set drama Incendies (2010).

Denis Villeneuve has directed some of the biggest films of the last 10 years - Dune, Prisoners, Blade Runner 2049, Arrival - but before the high-concept sci-fi and hard-boiled thrillers he arguable directed his best film, a slow-burning maze of revenge, war and broken families.

Incendies is an unflinching story about family, war and self-discovery that hits you like a freight train. Unfolding with the same grandeur of a Greek tragedy, two different story lines blend together and ultimately collide in a gut-wrenching climax. The first one follows a set of twins who embark on a journey in order to uncover their family roots. The second recounts their late mother’s life through a set of flashbacks taking place in a fictionalized Middle East country that heavily borrows from the Lebanese Civil War.
