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.
