Diaries of a Flying Dog
Directed by Bassam Fayad
A man and his tiny dog have something in common: obsessive compulsive anxiety disorder. Throughout their quest to heal, we dissect into pieces the surroundings – in its upbringing, fears and constant inner conflict. A memory is recalled; a memory filled with fear, violence, war, love and a past almost depicting itself again in the present and in the future. The setting is a family’s house. A father, a mother, sons, daughters and grandchildren living on a versant in Lebanon. The time is when beauty faded and ugliness and expiation prevailed. The man is the director, the dog is the mirror and the film is the instrument.
Mohammed Adel El Safty / Egypt, France / 2014 / 15 minsThe world of dreams intersects with reality; daily fears haunt us when we should be free. White Sugar is the story of a man trying to escape his world of fears and fighting against the rules by introducing his own credo.
