Lebanon: Bits and Pieces
A film by Olga Nakkas
France, 1994, 60 minutes, Color, DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99423
LEBANON: BITS AND PIECES is an exquisitely beautiful and profoundly moving exploration of the myths and realities of present-day Lebanon, as reflected through the voices of women. During Olga Nakkas’ childhood, Lebanon was known to the outside world as an exemplary model of peace in the heart of an Arab Middle East dominated by dictators. Following a seven year absence, Nakkas returned to Lebanon with a camera to record the dreams, disappointments and worries of women of her own generation and to meet a younger generation of women whose only memory is that of war. Through these voices, Nakkas’s own voyage of rediscovery is revealed — rediscovery of her country and of herself.

    “A personal and poignant mosaic of vignettes; one outstanding scene epitomizes the unique multi-culturalism of Lebanon.”
