Broken Keys (Lebanon): Interview with Director Jimmy Keyrouz

Jimmy Keyrouz was finishing his master’s in film directing at Columbia University in 2014 when he heard in the news that ISIS had banned music in its Syrian territories. So, he decided to make his thesis film about the subject and thus was born his short film Nocturne in Black, which ended up sweeping numerous awards including Gold for Best Narrative at the Student Academy Awards, the Bafta Student Film Award for Live Action, and a student award at the Directors Guild of America.
