Alone with War

Seule avec la guerre

Directed by Danielle Arbid
France, Belgium, 2000


Beirut is a wonderful town. It’s like you’re at the center of everything. In Beirut, between 1975 and 1990, there was a civil war, everybody wanted to exterminate everybody. Today, war is over. It stopped a day, like that, after having corrupted our lives. I wanted to shoot the void it had left.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
