Introduced by Hisham M. Bizri
In a divided Beirut during the 1980s civil war, 12-year-old Lina focuses her attention on Siham, her aunt’s young, mistreated maid. Through her attempts to communicate with adults and other kids, Lina finds her space in the tumultuous world around her. Arbid tactfully displays the emotional consequences of civil war upon the impressionable adolescent. 2004, France/Belgium/Lebanon, color, 35mm, in Lebanese with English subtitles, 90 minutes.
