The feature debut of sound designer Rana Eid is a journey into the heart of Beirut’s darkness – an audiovisual exploration of extreme contrasts between history and modernity, the sparkling surface and the underworld. A letter to her late father is an attempt to reconcile herself with the past and the psychosomatic impacts of the schizophrenic history of her country on her own body. From underground prisons, bunkers and hidden prayer rooms, the babylonic sound of dissonant stories rises to the surface, in which the filmmaker’s letter attempts to bring a sort of order.
