'LOST' is an experimental documentary film about Beirut by Rami Khalife, acclaimed French-Lebanese pianist (THE JUILLIARD SCHOOL, NYC) and composer (CHAOS, TUNNEL TO THE MOON, STORIES, REQUIEM FOR BEIRUT...), and Francois Rousseau, an award-winning French painter, filmmaker, art photographer (VILLA MEDICIS HORS LES MURS PRIZE, MAISON EUROPEAN HOUSE OF PHOTOGRAPHY) and fashion photographer (DIOR, CHANEL, ADIDAS, ARMANI, SWAROVSKI).
'LOST' will be projected on a big screen accompanied by Khalife on the piano, live. The film is a visual representation of Khalife's original 13 track album 'Lost.'
"I captured Rami's return to his homeland, Lebanon. A country he fled as a child of civil war. I saw the scars of an exodus that have never healed...This film is his story," says Rousseau,"I felt the tears of a young Syrian refugee girl, the beautiful shapes of dancers among the rubble, the courage of a woman whose husband disappeared along with thousands of others during the Lebanese civil war, I witnessed the challenge of conservative thinking towards the LGBTQI+ community and choreographer Alexander Paulikevich."
Australian journalist Mariam Saab (...FRANCE 24, ABC) will open the event with a short introduction.
