Friday Night Film Series: Aftermath of War: JE VEUX VOIR / I WANT TO SEE
(dir. Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, 2008, 75 min)
In July 2006, a war breaks out in Lebanon, a war that crushes the hopes of peace and the momentum of an entire generation. Not knowing what stories to tell and what images to show of the war, filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige ask: what can cinema do? That difficult question becomes the impetus for this film where Hadjithomas and Joreige travel to Beirut with an icon, an actress who, to them, symbolizes cinema. Together, they drive through the regions devastated by the conflict, and this journey marks the beginning of an unpredictable and unexpected adventure.
