This projects aims to retell Tripoli’s cultural and social history with a special focus on the Golden Age (1950s to mid-70s). It does so through the lens of the city’s cinemas, once vibrant cultural and social hubs, using historical records, archival material and personal testimonies. The project will culminate in the publication of a book and the creation of a blog with content from the book and recorded interviews from the research phase. The blog will also allow visitors to upload their own images of the city.
