A documentary by Roy Dib
Produced by APEAL
Wit the support of the Embassy of Switzerland in Lebanon / Ambassade de Suisse au Liban and Robert A. Matta Association for Arts and Culture
Arabic with French subtitles



In October 2016 APEAL:Association for the Promotion and Exhibition of the Arts in Lebanon led a community outreach program parallel to The Silent Echo exhibition, curated by Studiocur/art. APEAL commissioned Zoukak Theatre Company to to prepare and implement a participatory theatre workshop with elderly residents of Baalbek centered on issues of heritage, history and identity which resulted in a performance of their creation.

The documentary completes the community outreach project. It offered the participants the opportunity to express themselves beyond the setting of theater and their performance. It gave them extra space and time to elaborate on subjects they tackled through the performance. Each one of them had stories they were keen on sharing; which completed the work done in the workshops in terms of addressing their relationships to the city. The documentary addresses this topic both in terms of collective relationship through exercises done in the workshops and the performance, as well as individual relationships through the interviews.
