He got awards

My Lebanese ex-husband, who by trade is a film-maker and video editor, has not been idle since his arrival in the Province of Quebec. After starting 99 % Media with the encouragement of friends, he has gotten involved in several short films, some of which are winning awards.
This one is for the short film A Syrian Story, a short film that shows the nastiness of the Syrian revolution.

This award is for the short film "La Charte des distractions", a social commentary on the proposed "Charte de valeur Quebecoise" the Parti Quebecois wanted to  impose and which upset many immigrants and Quebecois de souche as well. Thankfully the Charte never came to pass. I'd like to think the short film helped in that regard.
