Combining music and film, this work is based on archival footage from the 1920s captured in Lebanon by Pathé and Gaumont. “Topology of an Absence” proposes a new way to look at this archive, a hundred years after unnamed camera operators filmed the city of Beirut and captured bodies, faces, and eyes.
