R:EXISTENCE


Directed by | Marco Pasquini

Genre documentary  |  Length: 45mins  |  Year of production: 2006


Five women, returning to their devastated villages in southern Lebanon after the 2006 war, recount their experiences during the conflict. Five “existences” are profiled from the million or more Lebanese driven from their homes by the fighting. Layla, Haifa, Dina, Zeynab and Fatme speak with calm and pride while sitting in what remains of their homes. They tell of life under the bombings, about the meaning of having a house, and about their feelings on encountering the destruction on their return. Moreover, they describe their enduring will to resist as a daily and tenacious act of selfaffirmation and selfpreservation.
