THURSDAY, MAY 24 | 19.06 | Espaço Cultural Casa do Lago – UNICAMP | CAMPINAS

Rich in archival footage from Lebanon’s militant cinema tradition, the film reconstructs the spirit of that revolt, asking of the past how we might transform the present.

In the process of modernity, people are involved less as individuals in conflicts, and more as representatives of a system. Using improvisation, this mockumentary develops its narrative through role-switching, interviews and an abstracted world in order to humorously point out how nurtured principles and predisposed hierarchies present themselves as self-discipline within individuals.
