Movie- SKIES OF LEBANON (5.00pm)

April 23, 2022

In the 1950s, Alice leaves her native Swiss mountains for the vibrant shores of Beirut where she falls in love. But the years of bliss become marred by the threat of civil war. This is the feature debut from writer-director Chloé Mazlo.

"Colorful, stop-motion animation and offbeat characters add whimsy to this drama about the marriage between a Swiss woman and a Lebanese astrophysicist. Sparks fly when the European visitor meets the genial scientist in a Beirut café in the 1950s, the city becoming their home after they wed. But can that love survive when civil war breaks out 20 years later?" (San Francisco Film Festival)
