As part of its "101 Arabian Nights" program, the Arabic Association for Cultural Exchange presenting with the corporation of Wiltz Festival one of the most enhanced festival of the Three brothers, three ouds. Samir, Wissam and Adnan. On stage and in the studio, their instruments come together like three soloists who form one single voice. The oud, or Arabic lute, has become the voice of their souls, the beating heart of their existence with which they have become one. Always three, together. With the Trio Joubran, virtuosity does not give into demonstration. For these natives of Nazareth who come from a long line of luthiers, it is about the perpetuation of a tradition. A tradition they have also deeply renewed by their innovation on the oud, this solo instrument which they have so wonderfully united as an ensemble.

Mahbas (Solitaire):
Is a Lebanese/Syrian romantic, comedy movie directed by Sophie Boutros and produced by Nadia Eliewat;
Both Boutros and Eliewat are the film writers too.
The film premiered in the Dubai International Film Festival in 2016 and released in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, UAE, Kuwait, and Palestine in 2017.
The film revolves around the story of a Lebanese mother who has developed a deep hatred towards Syrians as she lost her brother to a tragic incident during the Lebanese war. The memory of her brother’s death still fresh, keeps her hatred ongoing to the point that when she finds out that her daughter’s suitor and his family are Syrians, she is determined to stop the engagement. The film has a message of tolerance and forgiveness explicit in the two families comedic roller coaster ups and downs that eventually unravels the hatred in the end. Although the film targets the Lebanese and the Syrians, its message is applicable to other Arab neighbors and in general too.
