Panoptic

Director

Rana Eid

Synopsis

Panoptic is a letter from a daughter to her deceased father in an attempt to reconcile with her country’s turbulent past.  Panoptic delves into Beirut’s underground to explore Lebanon's schizophrenia: a nation that thrives for modernity while ironically ignoring the vices that obstruct achieving this modernity.  While the Lebanese population has chosen to turn a blind eye to these vices, Rana Eid, an ordinary citizen, explores the nation's paradoxes through sound, iconic monuments and secret hidings.
