Lost Paradise

Directed by Reine Mitri

Lost Paradise delves into the shapes that memories takes and the ways in which we absorb images that cross time and space. In an attempt to bring together losses suffered and endured throughout Lebanon’s often destructive history, Mitri explores the power that images of family, of places and of the imagination have to both preserve and reignite harrowing past emotions and experiences. Linking the destruction of Beirut to overwhelming personal loss connects the two in unforgettable imagery.
