IN THE SHADOW OF BEIRUT

2024 Oscar® Selection, Ireland

Ireland's official submission to the Academy Awards® for Best International Feature, and a contender in the Documentary Feature category, is a powerful yet harrowing documentary by a small, independent Irish-Lebanese filmmaking team that tells the stories of four families eking out an existence in the urban slum of Sabra and Shatila in Beirut. Through intimate conversations captured over four years that saw a deadly port explosion and the total collapse of Lebanon's financial system, Kelly and Keane portray the stark reality in which the families live while also depicting the resilience and hope that keeps them going day after day. In a time when humanitarian crises are commonplace, IN THE SHADOW OF BEIRUT is a sobering call to action and a portrait of struggles shared by hundreds of thousands across the world. DIR Stephen Gerard Kelly, Garry Keane; PROD Brendan J. Byrne, Myriam Sassine, Alison Toomey, Christian Beetz. Ireland/UK/Lebanon/Germany, 2023, color, 92 min. In Arabic with English subtitles. NOT RATED
