Our Heedless Wars • presentation
Beirut, September 1994: the systematic reconstruction of the city has begun. The civil war, which began in 1975, has been over for two years. Randa Chahal Sabbag, a Lebanese film-maker whose family was politically and militarily involved in the conflict, depicts these seventeen years of war from a very personal viewpoint. She makes use of her personal video collection and the 16 mm movies she made between 1975 and 1994. The film features interviews with her mother in Tripoli, her sister in Paris and her brother in Beirut. She pays tribute to the memory of her father who died during the war, returning to the ruins of a city whose reconstruction marks the passing of a part of her life. Is it possible to miss the war?
