Short Feature Film | 2003 | History | Germany

    Brief synopsis

    Beirut has 6 letters. Berlin has 6 letters too.

    Berlin and Beirut were occupied, destructed, divided, reconstructed and today, people still say “East and West” in both cities. Through the whole film Berlin and Beirut become one city. One space. A space where you feel the weight of the past and the lightness of life sharing with Myrna her stories, adventures and memories.
