该纪录片 我们之间的大海 由蒙特利尔电影制片人马琳·埃多扬(Marlene Edoyan)导演,跟随两名妇女在 贝鲁特,见证了爆发的城市 内战 在1970年代中期及其后续部门中。

大约三十年前,这场战争席卷了整个国家,即使在路障离开街道后,分离感仍然绕。 我们之间的大海 是两个女人的故事:Wafaa和Hayat –一个 基督教, 另一个 穆斯林,面临一个问题,“我们可以一起生活吗?” 这部电影将他们的故事交织在一起 直接电影 风格,展示日常生活中的情节,但从未达到高潮。 每集节目都可以让观众通过女性的视角来了解该国的持久分裂。 而且,尽管观众没有机会与女性保持足够的联系,以与她们建立深厚的联系,但影片却尽其所能-聆听她们的故事。

在内战期间与基督教民兵并肩作战的瓦法阿感到“我们与他们之间”与世隔绝。 战争结束后的几年,她发誓要“通过一个政党”捐献给自己的国家,从而对政治观点表现出坚定的信念。 瓦法(Wafaa)甚至说她会“死为法轮兵”,以保护自己所认为的基督徒“受威胁”的存在。 黎巴嫩。 她说:“我们还在这里,我们的[教堂]铃铛会不断响。”

Wafaa害怕不知道未来会带来什么,因此训练她的儿子Anthony(似乎对国防并不热心)走向“真正的开火”和“像你的母亲一样”。 然而,在所有的游戏和游戏中,不经意地在阿拉伯语和英语之间切换的年轻人提出了一个发人深省的问题:“这一切必要吗?”

共存

哈亚特,穆斯林的成员 什叶派 family, on the other hand, is a zealous advocate of the possibility of co-existence between different religious and ethnic groups. During a meeting that brings together Lebanese and 叙利亚妇女, Hayat admits that, as a Shiite, she cannot live «in a purely Shiite area.» To Hayat, hope lies in a unified Beirut, in a wealth of religions where «Muslims hear church bells alongside the call to prayer.»

大约三十年前,这场战争席卷了整个国家,即使在路障离开街道后,分离感仍然绕。

The urgency to Hayat’s cause is palpable through the screen, charging even the seemingly mundane moments, like a visit to a manicurist. As the two engage in a routine cosmetic procedure, their conversation becomes dominated by grave concerns over the future of their homeland. The women wish to see like-minded people enter the political arena and do away with the system where power is «inherited» and «passed to kids and grandkids.»

The film grapples with the difficult question of whether reconciliation is a viable outlook in a country that remains fraught with tension. Wafaa and Hayat, who went through the civil war in their youth, now face the decision on whether they want to pass the war’s legacy onto their children. Fady, who fought with the Lebanese Forces during the war, encourages Wafaa to abandon the fear and «look at tomorrow» because «the dead alone write the endings of wars.»

Despite her convictions, moving away from the divisions of the past deems to be an arduous task for Hayat as she is «stuck buying more black clothes» to mourn the death of her loved ones. During the film, Hayat reveals that the civil war claimed the lives of her two brothers who were forced to fight alongside the Christian militia to protect their family from harassment. The recent death of her nephew Ali, a fallen Hezbollah fighter, stirs up deep-seated emotions of loss, driving the absurdity of war home, «A young university student, studying business management, and now he’s gone. I raised him, he used to call me his second mother. He died. But for what?»

«For what?» is a looming question that is left for our deliberation. As the two women go on about their lives, the question that keeps resurfacing is: Can we make peace and move forward if the divisions persist decades after the war?
