Letter From Beirut

Lettre de Beyrouth

Jocelyne Saab

Three years after the beginning of the civil war the filmmaker returns to her city for several months. Living between this war-torn country and a country in peace, she tries to readapt to daily life in Beirut. Public transport in the city no longer exists, but the filmmaker gets an old bus up-and-running, provoking a disconcerting return to normality in this city at war: people climb onto the bus that they see as a place of security.
