Skies of Lebanon
|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.
