Birds of September

Sarah Francis  |  Cinema  |  2011  |  Lebanon
A glassed van roams the streets of Beirut, home to the filmmaker's camera that explores the city behind the glass. Along the way, several people are invited to share a personal moment in this moving confessional. Each one comes as a face, a body, a posture, a voice, an attitude, an emotion, a point of view, a memory. Their confessions are true, blunt, and intimate. However, soon enough, the vehicle empties again, and roams Beirut; restlessly looking for something, for someone.
