"Christian Ghazi’s incendiary, avant-garde masterpiece."—Herb Shellenberger, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival

Featuring a conversation with Yasmine Ramadan and Adey Almohsen after the 5/23 screening.

Rejecting propagandistic or narrative convention, documentary and abstract sequences combine with a series of discontinuous plot lines to organize a stinging attack on the bourgeois decadence of Beirut's political milieu. Taking place during the early period of the Palestinian revolutionary project, Lebanese auteur Christian Ghazi uses phenomenal experimental sound design mixed with visual techniques that incorporate stylistic elements from the Kino-Eye and Nouvelle Vague movements to present an on the ground view of a people on the verge of a liberation struggle.
