ABOUT THE FILM:

Chloé Mazlo / France / 2021 / 92 min / French, Arabic, and Italian with English subtitles

‘Mazlo’s mixing of animated and live-action creates a dream world that is shaken by the real world and the result is both striking and immensely watchable.’

—Film Inquiry

A poetic blending of the personal and political, Skies of Lebanon combines live action with animation to create a vivid picture of Lebanon, inspired by the family history of the filmmaker.
