dyad gaze

short film, 26 minutes, 2019


with beirut as a backdrop, a young writer and philosopher, noor tannir, recalls her first memory growing up in the city. the film weaves through the quotidian light of an old house in hamra and asks questions about the place from which one speaks. in pondering dual gazes––interviewer/interviewee, teacher/student––the ground of positioning is called into question. a dyad narrative attempts to unravel through a singular testimony.
