The South is Back
2008 | 00:52:00 | Lebanon / Italy| Arabic/ English | Color | Mono | 4:3 |
A journey across Southern Lebanon and its people; a people that has endured endless bombardments, imprisonment, and invasions.
The South is Back is multi-portrait of the South of Lebanon one year after the 2006 attacks of massive destruction. We, self-consciously engage the viewer from a personal point of view, focusing on the popular resistance to the Israeli occupation, as well as conceptions of «the land» and loss, and the inner and outer processes of reconstruction.

You are here for a reason | The night between Ali and I | A glance and I thought it was a greeting
La chose commence ici | Flying fence | Preferring the fleeting happiness on earth
Half broken hearted half in love | The connivance of watching Birds
You know who I am | Oum in three movements | Besides the sea | Friction
58 Degrees | Anticipation of a disappearance | Inheritance | The south is back
