In the Shadow of Beirut

Kelly and Keane’s cinematic and powerful film captures the stark reality of life in Beirut's Sabra and Shatila neighbourhoods. The film follows four families over 4 years and depicts the harsh rituals of their daily lives as they struggle for survival in a city and country on the brink of financial collapse. Through extraordinary access, the filmmakers open a window into a largely unseen world to unfold a collection of utterly compelling human narratives filled with resilience and hope. In quiet, intimate moments, the vulnerability of people living in the shadows of this once-great city fills the screen.
