SELECTED: CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2020

As Alice builds a new life and starts a family, conflicts in the region begin to turn her life upside down. Ultimately, the couple are faced with a crucial question: should they stay in the country they love or leave? With colourful photography and rich design, director Chloé Mazlo cleverly combines live action and animation, creating a vivid picture of 1950s Lebanon.

Mazlo’s feature debut beautifully blends the poetic with personal experiences, at the same time as emphasising the importance of connection and family.
Chloé Mazlo delivers a very original and extremely charming feature debut, tackling the history of the Lebanese conflict through a love story, a family, and an approach both poetic and melancholy.
