Screening 4: The Shadow of Beirut
Friday 4 December, 19:00 to 21:00
In English and Arabic
Casting a long shadow, the city tinges every encounter with a particular pigment, where nothing is at it seems. The films presented here tell stories of the city, by saying everything, or nothing at all.
– Wastelands (32'), Rania Stephan, 2008
– Always with You (6'), Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, 2008
– Here or Perhaps Elsewhere (54'), Lamia Joreige, 2003
This screening is part of a series bringing together recent and previous work by artists and filmmakers on Beirut. Curated by Roy Dib and organized around four themes, the films in the program weave a complex and contradictory image of urban life in Beirut.
