This documentary pays tribute to Beirut’s reminiscence. By taking a trip down
my family’s memory, guided by my father, who has always been the eyes I
see this city with. My story narrates the tales of three generations;
immigration to Brazil, the bitterness of the civil war and nowadays. These are
the stories that embroidered my memory of Beirut.
