In Lebanon there are more than 100 untouched mass graves dating back from the Civil War, and thousands of families awaiting a missing relative or at least a bone to bury.
The Soil and the Sea is a feature documentary film that unveils the violence lying beneath a garden, a school, a cafe, a hotel, and other unremarkable landscapes. As the camera interrogates these everyday spaces, voices fill them with erased stories.
The film will premiere in Curzon SOHO on February 19, 2024 in the presence of the filmmaker Daniele Rugo. It will be screening in three Curzon cinema locations (SOHO, Oxford, Canterbury Westgate). Tickets here.
The film will also be available online on Curzon Home Cinema starting February 19.
