Description

Using a cast of contemporary activists, Raed and Rania Rafei combine meticulous historical research with improvisational performances to restage the 1974 student occupation of The American University of Beirut. Present and past emerge as deeply entwined, collapsing the pressures of reality with imagined histories and visions of future change.
