Lebanon | 1992 | 50 min | Documentary
Synopsis
The film explores the devastating effects of Lebanon's 16-year old civil war on its people and the environment. Through the lives of four Lebanese from very different backgrounds, the documentary tells the story of a Beirut community's struggle to reconstruct their lives after the war. The film assesses the appalling impact of modern warfare on the environment, and looks ahead to a new conflict in the making - this time over the Middle East's most precious commodity, water.
