Lebanon. Nowadays. The traces of the heavy past of the civil war are still vivid. Corruption of government parties is becoming increasingly unsustainable. Bodies rise. Words collide. At the heart of this, musicians from different backgrounds connect their instruments and make them resonates from all sides.
“This project was born from our encounter with the French experimental rock band Oiseaux-Tempête, and their will to record their third album in Lebanon in collaboration with musicians from the Beirut scene. Beyond the desire to understand and document the phenomenon of a musical encounter, as obvious as it is elusive, the desire to shoot this film in Beirut was a way for us to explore a creative context made of multiple layers, binding politics to the individual.”
