When:Th 16-11-2023 16:00 - 18:00
Where:Marie Lokezaal, Harmonie building

This event is organized by the Centre for Historical Studies.

In Lebanon there are more than 100 untouched mass graves dating back from the Civil War, and thousands of families awaiting a missing relative or at least a bone to bury. The Soil and the Sea unveils the violence lying beneath a garden, a school, a cafe, a hotel, and other unremarkable landscapes. As the camera interrogates these everyday spaces, voices fill them with erased stories.

The film screening will consist of the documentary followed by a discussion with the director, Daniele Rugo, and the producer, Carmen Abou Jaoude.

Moderators: Lucia Admiraal and Karim El Taki (RUG, MES)
