Introduction

France, Lebanon, Canada, Qatar / 2021 / 100min
Director:Joana HADJITHOMAS & Khalil JOREIGE

Maia lives in Montreal with her teenaged daughter, Alex. On Christmas Eve, a box arrives filled with personal diaries, audio cassettes, and photographs sent from Maia to her best friend before Maia left Lebanon behind in her youth. She refuses to open such a Pandora’s box, but Alex can’t resist the temptation to take a peek while she’s snowbound at home. Maia’s adolescent years spent in Beirut during the civil war come to light...
Known for titles such as ″A Perfect Day″ (2005) and ″Je Veux Voir″ (2008), filmmakers and artists Joana HADJITHOMAS and Khalil JOREIGE return to feature films for the first time in nine years. Freely adapting from the journals and tapes HADJITHOMAS herself kept from 1982 to 1988, the film takes a multi-layered, innovative approach to depicting memories shared across generations. Screened in competition at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival.
