Malaki-Scent of an Angel

Directed by ZAAROUR Khalil Dreifus

Storyline

"MALAKI - Scent of an Angel" focuses on families who have lost a loved one during and after the Lebanese civil war. It examines the trauma of six different families and the pain of uncertainty. What happened to their husbands and sons? Are they alive or dead? Beyond the political implications, the film tells of broken family bonds, loss, doubt, expectation and the pain related to their disappearance. The film plays on the notion of reality and fantasy blurred because the reality of the families is unbearable.
