Video in Five Movements. 2006
(Video en cinco movimientos)
Video, 8:50 min

In the 1960s, Hashem el Madani used his super 8 camera to film outings with his family and friends. This video explores how Madani spontaneously directed his actors / friends / family members including himself. The rushes used in the five movements were shot in the late 1960s and early seventies in Egypt, and many sites in Líbano such as Beiteddine, Kfarhonah, Dahr el Ramleh, and Jezzine, which used to be Madani's summer residence.
