1979, 80 mins
This film is the result of two years of work (1976 – 1978). Through its analysis, and certain documents presented here, this film goes beyond this period to grasp at the remote causes of the conflict. It attempts to draft a timeline of events: the dismemberment of Lebanon, the liquidation of the Palestinian movement, the new balance of powers in the Middle East under US rule. The events that resulted from the Israeli occupation of part of Lebanon and the intervention of the United Nations confirm this.
In this sense, this film is not finished, as it endeavoured to accompany the ever-evolving reality of a country, and the suffering of a people.
