Beirut 1990 Beirut 1990
Snapshots of a Civil War
The travel diary of two brothers to a land at war.
1990, off to join an aunt working for a relief organization, young Frenchmen Sylvain and Bruno Ricard come to discover the ins and outs of everyday life in Lebanon’s war-torn capital.
More than a decade later the brothers recount their experiences with the help of artist Christophe Gaultier, as inspired by the real life pictures taken by the siblings on their journey of discovery.
