"Tramontane," the feature film debut of Vatche Boulghourjian, tells the story of a young musician named Rabih.The production process became more elaborate as people began to hear about the project and invited the team to participate in various labs and workshops – common currency in the regional film market nowadays – beginning with the Venice Biennale's Cinema College.The project was invited to Dubai Film Market, which ended with an introduction to Abbout Productions founder George Shoucair.The eureka moment in casting the film came when Boulghourjian and Zaven learned about a concert in a mountain village church whose featured choir was comprised of blind singers. This is how they met Barakat Jabbour, who had been called forward to perform a solo piece.The filmmaker and his music supervisor met Jabbour and he was more than happy to participate in the project. He co-stars in the film alongside veteran Lebanese actor Julia Kassar and Jabbour's uncle Toufic Barakat, another freshman actor.
