Beirut the encounter


10/03/2022 à 19:00

Come and join us for the screening of Beirut the Encounter by late filmmaker Borhane Alaouié, presented by Nadi Lekol Nass and that was recently restored.


Beirut the Encounter (Beirut al Liqa')
Borhane Alaouie, 101'
1981, Lebanon
Arabic with English subtitles.

Beirut, 1977. Zeina (Nadine Acoury) is about to leave the country. Haydar (Haitham El Amine) hasn’t been in the city for very long; he had to leave his village because of the civil war. The two haven’t seen each other in years, although a sense of longing has endured. The nature of their relationship – whether friendship, romance or something in between – is deliberately left vague by the film’s director, Borhane Alaouié. The camera follows the two of them for around 24 hours, past checkpoints and ruins, stuck in traffic, waiting in vain in a café.
