Country Of Origin: Lebanon
For over seventy years, Elie Sfeir has been working as a barber in Beirut, at some of the country's most exclusive and refined salons. Now a spry octogenarian, he has a lifetime of memories to share, which he does generously in 'All About My Father', a fascinating portrait of a man who, over the years, has coiffed the heads of politicians, princes and presidents. Filmed at his home by his daughter, filmmaker Zeina Sfeir, this engaging and charming character has heard it all, gossip, intrigue, political thought, personal dilemmas - creating a unique history of Lebanon, heard directly from the lips of those who shaped it. Since starting out in a barbershop in the mountain village of Aley in 1942, to the salubrious salons of the Phoenicia Hotel in Beirut, Elie Sfeir has amassed a personal history that's rich in detail, colourful in anecdotes and throughout this lovely, endlessly surprising set of recollections, utterly fascinating.
