A prerecorded intro with Jude Chehab will precede the screening. 

Dir. Jude Chehab. 2023, 91 mins. United States/Lebanon. DCP. In Arabic and English with English subtitles. An intimate and haunting portrayal of a quest for love and acceptance at any cost, this documentary depicts a secretive matriarchal religious order’s insidious influence on three generations of women in the Chehab family in Lebanon. Filmmaker Jude Chehab potently documents the unspoken ties and consequences of loyalty that have bonded her mother, grandmother, and herself to the mysterious organization. A masterful portrait of the toll that decades of unrequited love, lost hope, abuse, and despair take on a person, Q is a multigenerational tale of the eternal search for meaning.
