Memento Films International (MFI) has picked up Philippe Aractingi’s creative documentary Heritages, which is screening in DIFF’s Muhr Arab Documentary competition.

The semi-autobiographical film explores the origins of the conflicts that have forced Aractingi’s family to repeatedly flee wars in his native Lebanon. It combines directed scenes with personal video diaries, old family photos and Super-8 reels.

Paris-based MFI previously sold Aractingi’s Under The Bombs, set against the backdrop of the 2006 Lebanon War, which won best feature and best actress (Nada Abou Farhat) at DIFF 2007.
