BEIRUT, LA VIE EN ROSE | RSIFF 2020

March 15, 2020 - March 18, 2020

RED SEA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

”A unique and surrealistic testimony to Lebanon, this documentary portrait of Beirut’s upper classes questions the complex reality of the capital city. Taking a look at the history of Lebanon through the lives of four prominent families from its Christian elite. The protagonists represent a golden age of stability and wealth a time when Lebanon was known as “the Switzerland of the East” and its capital, Beirut, “the Paris of the Middle East.”  Behind the closed doors of Beirut’s most exclusive neighborhoods, a lifestyle of elegance endures. Against the backdrop of daily insecurities and social division, intoxicating scenes of opulent celebration are the hangovers of a bygone era. Out of step with the realities of their wider communities, the ostentatious lifestyle of the Christian elite denies a precarious social reality. Though the wider world is changing, the film reveals a community that, inured to suffering, exists in bittersweet and tenuous seclusion. Director Eric Motjer brings this intriguing atmosphere to life with a soundtrack straight out of the electronic playbook of legendary Italian director Paolo Sorrentino.”
