Ziad Kaltoum presents a visual poem at the Festival

Thursday, March 29 - 19:15 - Aventure

 
 
The fate of refugees has always been one of the major themes of the Millennium Festival. In Taste of Cement, awarded at the festival Visions du réel, it is expressed graphically, oppressively, by means of a breathtaking visual and sound construction. Director Ziad Kaltoum will present this visual poem on Syrian refugees in Lebanon on March 29 at 19:15 at cinema Aventure. Do not miss!

 

 

 

In Beirut, Syrian construction workers are building a skyscraper while in their country, their own houses at home are being bombed. Cut off from their homeland, they gather at night around a small TV set to get news from Syria. Tormented by anguish and anxiety, deprived of the most basic human rights, they keep hoping for a different life. Ziad Khaltoum composes an excruciating essay on what it means to live in exile in a war-torn world with no possibilities of going home.
