After her husband was kidnapped in 1982 during the civil war in Lebanon, Wada Hilwani gathered together the families of the kidnap victims and formed the Committee for the Families of the Kidnapped and Missing. Decades after the end of the war, these families continue their painful search for the truth about their loved ones, and for justice against war crimes.
Mai Masri and Jean Chamoun founded Nour Productions in 1995 and have produced and directed several documentaries that received over 60 international awards including the 2011 MIPDoc Trailblazers Award and the Luchino Visconti Award in Italy (2004).
