About SKIES OF LEBANON (SOUS LE CIEL D'ALICE)

By Miquel Escudero Diéguez

For her first feature, Chloé Mazlo draws a picture of Lebanon from the perspective of her family history. Her main success is to show the complexity of this tragedy in a few strokes. Furthermore, one should remember that great filmmaking is often revealed in the most trivial gestures. The characters’ modesty won’t let them cry together, but the way they are seen and shot by Chloé Mazlo conveys how dignified and courageous thy are in their resistance. The way she merges live action images and animation reveals the virtuosity of a deeply intelligent, sensitive filmmaker.
