Close Up

The Lebanese artist Ghassan Halwani investigates a troubling history: the kidnapping and disappearance of political opponents to the military regime. Starting with the story of a man who, perhaps, has resurfaced, Halwani travels Beirut, revealing erasure and reappearances throughout the city in ingenious and deeply affecting ways. (Lebanon, 2018, 74m)

“Makes us acutely aware of what erasure can entail, politically and philosophically, and what it might mean to attempt to counteract its effects.” –Film Comment
