Multi-award-winning documentary including winner of the Movie That Matters Award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, comes home to Australia after a successful five-month international festival tour, for its official theatrical release.
The eyes of the world were forced to turn their gaze upon Lebanon, not only because of the Beirut Port explosion that devastated this ancient city on 4th August 2020, but also because it stands as an allegory for kleptocratic regimes that have seen a resurgence across the globe.
The film puts a spotlight on the ruling class and the manifold issues facing the country, especially the systemic corruption, through exclusive and controversial interviews with many of the key political leaders and blows the lid on the under-the table, pie-sharing deals that have permitted many of these leaders and cronies to remain in power for decades.
The film addresses the 2019 people’s revolution and the global social justice movement that was triggered among the Lebanese diaspora around the world who rallied to support their families back home. It provides a powerful insight into the complex traditional and emotional loyalties that still threaten the chance for change and evolution.
Shot over 4 years and across 4 continents, the film is beautifully filmed by award-winning Director of Photography, Justin Hanrahan ACS, and creatively edited by Academay Award nominee, Marcus D’Arcy ASE. The musical score, composed by international pianist and composer, Georges Tomb, and performed by the 83-piece Kiev Philharmonic Orchestra, powerfully compliments the emotionally provocative journey told by award-winning journalist and director Daizy Gedeon.
