Biography

Khalil Joreige lives and works with Joana Hadjithomas. Self-taught, they became filmmakers and artists out of necessity in the wake of the Lebanese Civil Wars, inventing singular modes of production that alternate freely between different formats, genres and mediums. Their films have been shown and awarded in the most important international film festivals and their artworks exhibited in museums, biennales and art centers around the world. In 2017 they were awarded the prestigious Marcel-Duchamp prize and are currently in pre-production of their next feature film. Co-founder of Abbout Productions with Georges Schoucair, Khalil Joreige is also a member of the Board of Metropolis Art Cinema, which is currently developing the new cinematheque of Beirut.
