Congrats on this truely poignant work
rarely does one see a film that represent what is real behind a war. This movie takes a strikingly real look on what war is to the poeple that surround it, to the students that grow during it, and to the neighbourhoods that survive it. It vivaviously captures the hopeful streak of taking pleasure in existing no matter what the odds. Coming from a Lebanese director; it is a non-indulgent petite masterpiece that may just rescusitate a form of cinema with an honesty only yearned for in that part of the world.
One unique short from an insightful director
Upon the first viewing of "The Street" to a small audience at the Los Angeles Public Library, Dima El-Horr's films strikes one as a meditative, with a deep set understanding of film linguistics. Boldly achieved and beautifully intact is a simple yet very dimentional story of a street in Post War Beirut as driven by the plight of young boy. Delicately woven, masterfully edited, and very well thought in terms of pictures speak more than a million words; 'The Street' is an uncanny balance of brushtrokes of nostalgia, intellect, realism, and pathos. I will not give it away as it is a must to see this film as an exemplary short from The Art Institute Graduate. Congrats to Dima.
