ANGELA AT BAR
Intersect sets place in the heart of Beirut, visually covering many sides of the city that have drastic differences in wealth distribution. It is a dialogue between the extravagantly rich and struggling poverty of streets that are so close geographically yet look nothing alike, written purely as a dialogue between a bickering, clashing married couple. Another layer to the film is a brief, however essential, search through history, questioning why and when this clash happened and how the country’s history leaves no room for this city to make peace with itself.
