Ziad Doueiri, The Attack



What happens when you realize the woman you've shared your life with had an entirely separate identity? In the case of Ziad Doueiri's The Attack, it's a brilliant Arab surgeon, just honored by the Israeli government for his work, who wakes one morning to find out that his wife was a suicide bomber. Writer-director Doueiri, best known for the remarkable, sexually intriguing Lila Says (2004), talks about being Lebanese in L.A., making films, and the arguments his work provokes.
