Documentary, by Jad Andari, Lebanon, 2020.
The director returns to his homeland and reconnects with the heart of Bzebdine, a rural part of Mount Lebanon. The documentary is an up-close and intimate look at the lives of his friends and family who still live there. A fascinating documentary that explores the atmospheres, faces and dreams of the people of this small mountain community. The changing sunlight, the kids playing venturing into the night, the religious songs of the elderly, the work of the woodcutter, the pine cone pickers, the elderly woman who knows how to recognize the edible plants in the fields. We are near Franco Piavoli's cinema, but in a remote place in Lebanon, where the most dangerous jobs and memories of war days appear as normal situations, and the only choice is to entrust oneself to God's will.
