This afternoon, at 6pm, Casa Árabe of Madrid presents the book Siempre nos quedará Beirut, by Laila Hotait, Spanish-Lebanese filmmaker and artist. The event can be seen on our Youtube and Facebook Live channels.
We will always have Beirut. Cine de auteur y guerra(s) en el Líbano, 1970-2006 (Ed. Akal, 2020) takes an audiovisual look at the violent episodes suffered in Lebanon since 1975 and shows how the films have together made up a complete and diverse filmography that serves as a tool to preserve the intimate, collective and national memory of a country. This monograph is both a regional historical memory that reflects and reflects on how civil society, despite religious or social class differences, not only resists violence, but builds and rebuilds what it destroys.
