Head to Rich Mix opening night of the AWAN Festival 2023 with a film screening of Beirut, The Aftermath, which will be followed by an in-person Q&A with the award-winning Director, Fadia Ahmad.
Event Starts at 7pm (Doors open from 6pm)
A month after the August 4th blast, an artist returns to Beirut to help rebuild what she can of her broken city. Retracing her usual itinerary of 10452 steps through the streets of Beirut, she seeks to portray the aftermath of the explosion that shook Lebanon to its core. A journey that once fulfilled the goal of self-discovery now gives both Beirut and the blast’s survivors a voice. Raw testimonials and powerful scenes recount the day everything collapsed all while showing the resilience of a people who don’t want to give up. Individuals from all walks of life finally open up after what seemed like a lifetime of silence.
After the screening and Q&A, there will be an opportunity to purchase one of Fadia’s prints of the city and a signed copy of her book ‘Beyrouth Beirut’.
The evening is presented by Arts Canteen in collaboration with Rich Mix.
