Synopsis


Filmées à Beyrouth en 1995, trois filles fantomatiques planent sur leur ville dont le ciel lumineux nimbe les souvenirs. Par les histoires qu’elles tracent et contre ces blocs carcéraux d’un avenir déjà présent et destructif, leur parole monte à l’assaut du temps et de l’Histoire.

Tënk's opinion


Franssou Prenant is a master storyteller. Filmmaker, editor and screenwriter all rolled into one, she creates seamless film-poems using Super 8 footage that blend images hot off the film reel, with voice-over and sounds that are out of sync. This film entwines the personal accounts of three women and their memories of Beirut, outlining their relationship with this city plagued by years of war.
