BEIRUT OUTTAKES

by Peggy AHWESH
2007 / Video / color / sound / 1S / 7' 30

Mr. Salloum found a cache of deteriorating commercial film reels, trailers and commercials in an abandoned theater in Beirut in the 1980's. Many years later, inspired by the material as a historical marker of popular media culture during the era of the civil war and a document of western orientalism, Ms. Ahwesh edited some of the fragments together. Beirut Outtakes is a small tribute to endurance, the history of decay and an examination of the export of American product.
