dyad gaze

short film, 26 minutes, 2018

with beirut as a backdrop, a young writer, 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.
