In this experimental short, we are transported to Beirut, which under quarantine orders has become a veritable ghost town. The unnerving screams and echoes of a deafening silence reign in every little corner of this city. The sadness, the craziness, the reverberations of the dead, the desperate voices of protestors and people trying to fight for it.

About the Director

Aktan Arym Kubat
Born in 1957 in Kyrgyzstan, Aktan has been working as a director since 1990. He won the 1993 Golden Leopard of the Future at Locarno Film Festival for "The Swing" and the 1998 Silver Leopard for "The Adopted Son." Aktan graduated from the Art Academy in Bishkek (formerly Frunze).

Ghadi is a 20 year old, Lebanese, cinema student at the Saint Joseph University of Beirut.
His main focus in life is filmmaking, but is greatly interested in photography as it is his main hobby. In photography, he essentially likes to explore the beauty of nature and its entanglement with human emotions. He has developed this everlasting passion for visual arts and storytelling at a very young age, and has been developing his skills ever since.
