From Lebanon to San Miguel de Allende, jubilation came to the “Jardín Principal”.

The XXI edition of the Guanajuato International Film Festival (GIFF) celebrated the work of Ghassan Salhab, who did not stop smiling and thanking everybody for the recognition to his work on behalf of the Mexican people.

The history of Lebanon and Mexico is broad, because it features innumerable contributions to the national cinema, and how it became the refuge of thousands of Lebanese who left their country because of political conflicts.

Both Ghassan and members of the Lebanese diplomacy, were grateful to be able to travel to Mexico and to know him beyond his cinematographic work.
