Lebanese Rocket Society Picture house at FACT

In the 1960s, Lebanon was the first Arab country to join the space race.

Led by physics teacher Manoug Manougian, a small group of students from the University Haigazian began rocket tests with the dream of scientific discovery and exploration.

Who were these young people? Why did they stop? And, most importantly, why all this was forgotten?

This documentary screening will be followed by a Q&A, details to be announced.

The Lebanese Rocket Society is part of Abandon Normal Devices festival, hosted in 2013 by FACT. For further information on the rest of the AND festival programme visit www.andfestival.org.uk
