A SUSPENDED LIFE

JOCELYNE SAAB

27 November 2018, 6 PM - 7:30 PM

Hala, a child of the war, finds relief from the chaos around her through Egyptian movies she watches on television. Karim, an artist in retreat from life, remains in his apartment in war-torn West Beirut, confident that he is safe in his familiar neighbourhood. An unlikely bond is formed between the two as they face the devastating civil war. A tale of poetic truth, the film examines the ways in which war brings people together as well as tearing them apart.

This screening is part of the Jocelyne Saab Month at Dar El-Nimer, curated by Mathilde Rouxel
