Mad Crossings

Beirut’s hippodrome is one of the landmarks that perpetuate the country’s civil war history and power structures. From this place’s history, its present, the horse race and the people involved in it, the film unfolds as a multilayered work interweaving the war’s audiovisual memory and the reconstruction process that destroyed the pre-war era only to reproduce similar power structures.
