Description

Free Film Screening:

Costa Brava, Lebanon
(Mounia Akl, 2021, 107 min, Lebanon, Arabic w/ English subtitles, Color, DCP)

Costa Brava, Lebanon captures the joys and frustrations of a close-knit family with an intimacy that feels startlingly natural, and sets them against a sharply drawn backdrop of environmental crisis. In the not-so-distant future, the free-spirited Badri family have escaped the toxic pollution and social unrest of Beirut by seeking refuge in an idyllic mountain home. Without warning, the government starts to build a garbage landfill right outside their fence, intruding on their domestic utopia and bringing the trash and corruption of a whole country to their doorstep.

“Part family drama, part political statement, it asks at what point isolation becomes a selfish choice instead of a protective one, and if it’s possible to love your country but also hide from it.” — Roxana Hadadi, New York Magazine

 

Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
