Thanks for reading the story of Beethoven, which started the Beirut Documentary Film Festival, and now we’re starting with the details
Sharjah – Ayman Al-Fateh – Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony breaks the wall of death in Beirut, announcing the opening of the Documentary Film Festival, which is rising from the death state as a result of Lebanon’s worst financial, social and economic crisis.
And as a dance in the morning and as an expression of commitment to hope and creativity in a time of isolation, Beirut Art Documentary Film Festival’s head, Alice Magghab, decided to open the sixth edition of this annual event last Thursday evening with two pieces about German composer Ludwig van Beethoven.
The festival is the first film event held in Beirut since the Crown pandemic, and was held at the Mono Theater Hall in Ashrafieh, which was destroyed by a port explosion that killed 200 people and destroyed large areas of Beirut. Despite the explosion on August 4 last year, this festival wipes some of its pain from the city and embeds a little hope, accompanied by music and films, between its walls that were near death.
“Solutions are needed today, it is easy to cry and fall, but together we can restore soul to a wounded Lebanon and its venerable capital,” said Magbaghab.
Both documentaries focused on Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, which reflects a stronger expression of beauty, love and the will to live. Maria (60) said: “How beautiful that the author was blind when he offered his soul to the melodies and gave them his soul. This is how we want Beirut to be at the level of the soul’s melody despite the wound.
She added: “I came to the Mono Theater, where the party is on foot, my home is far away, but I wanted to celebrate my life and my wounded capital and support Alice Maghbegh in her insistence on instilling hope and re-spreading culture in our sad souls. I took pictures of cracked buildings and others that withstood the work of “I talk to strangers in the theater with respect for social distance … I want to come back to life”. As for Pamela El Khoury (35), she said that the two documentaries “Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony: A Symphony for the World” produced in 2020 and “What is the Ninth Symphony” produced in 2013 “translated the legendary work into two different ways, seen by the most important orchestra leaders in the world, from the author. The Chinese Tan Du to the Englishman Gabriel Prokofiev, to the Greco-Russian Theodore Corinthias is one work that has more than one insight. ” The sixth edition of the festival takes place in cooperation with international sponsors and directors, in which 20 films from Lebanon, America, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium and other countries take part.
