Based on her heartfelt memoir, “Beirut, I Love You”, is the story of Zena; a Lebanese artist whose reality pits friendships, love and art against the ever-present threat of war. The shortfilm is a journey guided by her voice and presence, through her city and country, still showing scars of the civil war and shaken by the Israeli 2006 invasion. In Beirut you live like there is no tomorrow. Any moment, the bombs could start falling again.
...When I first read Zena's autobiographical book, i thought it was the best portrayal of my generation, i had ever come across. Global, uncompromised, compassionate, brave, urgent. A story that comes from Love. The instinctive love of Zena for Maya, her best friend. The difficult love of Zena for her troubled city and its people. At last, Beirut, it's a character of its own. Breathing the life of its faces and crowded streets or broken down buildings and plastic people. Against the ever present threat of war, are Beirut, Zena and Maya. When Maya is fighting her diagnosed cancer and Zena remains in a city under the bombs, to share her last days. Starting a blog that will be published by the international press and partly originate this book. To which this short film is a trailer.
