Written and directed by Lebanese filmmaker Rachel Aoun, Bystander was a FILMSshort Festival finalist and is perhaps the best exploration of masculinity ever depicted in a short film (which is strange, as it was written by a woman). This short drama follows the basketball coach and new father, Roger, who witnesses a vicious (and ultimately fatal) assault on his way to work but fails to intervene. He is left questioning his manhood and his feelings of emasculation are finally expressed in a wonderful scene where he berates himself through his students. It is in Arabic with English subtitles. If you like the Lebanese drama Bystander by Rachel Aoun be sure to rate it and share it!
