Mounia Akl | Lebanon | 2016 | 20 min. | Arabic spoken | English subtitles
Lebanon, in a not too dystopian near future. Lebanon’s garbage crisis poses a heavy burden on a little village, whose inhabitants decide to leave the town for good. Hala, a wild child inside of a woman, refuses to evacuate, clinging to whatever remains of home and to keep alive, if only for a moment, the ghost of a better time.
