RELATIVE CALM ... IN LEBANON.

Dutch-Palestinian filmmaker Radi Suudi made this 50-minute documentary in 2013, now it is finally with English subtitles. The film coud have been made today because Lebanon is still struggling with the toxic legacy of its own bloody past. And like a thunderstorm around the corner the civil war is still raging in neighbouring Syria. Lebanon is still flooded with refugees from Syria while different parts of Lebanese society are still supporting the different sides in the Syria war. Syria's bloody present is interwined with Lebanon's bloody past. And the mood in Lebanon today is more gloomy then in 2013, with open talk of a new civil war...
