Directors Jonas Poher Rasmussen and Eliane Raheb will discuss collaborating with a friend to tell their story in a collaborative and accurate way, and how creative techniques allowed them to do that. If you’ve yet to see their most recent films (Flee and Miguel’s War, respectively), which have only played at festivals so far, trust us, they will be on your list of the Best Films of 2021 by December.
