Screening and meeting with Danielle Arbid
Danielle Arbid's cinema makes the Lebanese family novel the very space of the film, an adventure ground, a motif to be explored, a territory of language. In all her films, the regulated play of speech is the cardinal place of a linguistic conflict. Through short and feature films, his attention is indeed focused on the space of dialogues that fully carry the action and the progress of the narratives that scandalize all his films, are so many micro-stories engaging the history of Lebanon past or recent.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director and Pascale Cassagnau, head of audiovisual and new media collections at the National Center for Visual Arts (Ministry of Culture), and an exchange with the audience.
