Song for the Deaf Ear

“Song for the Deaf Ear” (18 min 24 sec, 2008) is a film poem about the insanity of war and violence in Lebanon. The filmmaker returned to his country of origin in 2007 to create a film on the death of his neighbors some 20 years ago. He constructed a story that revolves around a man who was shot dead on the streets of Beirut during the civil war and the crumbling world surrounding him. We see flashes of him throughout the film — first bleeding on the pavement, and, finally, his death. At the film’s end, we see a home movie shot the summer before his death — he is sailing, with his family and his fiancée, enjoying a simple day in their life.
