Director statement

“Cinema like life moves and doesn’t end with the end credits of a film. Lidia in Disruption walks in Beirut after she has walked in Milan in Antonioni’s La notte in 1961, and as Lidia felt nostalgic in the old neighbourhood in Milan then, Lidia walks and fears for the old buildings in Beirut now. When Lidia looks up and sees the planes in the sky of Milan in 1961, she doesn’t know that many years in the future she will walk in Beirut and look up to see Israeli planes instead. In Disruption I accompanied Lidia, both as a human being and as an artist, she lead me into myself and the people I grew up with, into the city that stood up and faced the most feared always.”
