Teta Fatima is the 83-year old matriarch of the Kaabour family and the sharp-witted queen bee of an old Beiruti quarter. With great intimacy, this playful magical-realist documentary documents her larger-than-life character as she combats the silence of her once-buzzing house as well as her imaginings of what awaits her beyond death. Meanwhile, her beloved violinist husband (deceased 20 years) is both an essential absence and presence, his face manifesting itself through the face of their filmmaker grandson and his previously unpublished violin improvisations weaving through her world and that of the film.

Grandma, a Thousand Times brings together grandfather, grandmother and grandson in a playful magic-realist documentary that aims to defy a past death and a future one.


French and Arabic subtitles are available for download only in DVD format.
