On Sunday 16/10, a group of ALCASA members and friends attended the screening of the Lebanese movie “Bennesbeh labokra chou?” (What about tomorrow?) at Mercury Cinema.

The movie was written and staged as a theatrical play by Ziad Rahbani in 1978. This as a significant time for Lebanon.  In the heart of 2016_10_16_alcasa_ziadmovieBeirut where the outrageous civil war atrocities took place, Ziad decided to make the Lebanese laugh instead of trembling from fear and despair. His satire and subtle humor are still current and funny 38 years later. The movie has been sensitively recreated with substantial restoration of original Super 8 film footage shot.
