Synopsis

“Beirut Terminus” explores the notions of borders, identity and belongingness, within a perpetually troubled region of the world. Using Lebanon’s discarded railway and what’s left of its deserted infrastructure as its core scenery, the film interweaves personal and historical facts while taking a contemplative and geographical journey from the peripheral train stations of the country, towards the central station of its capital Beirut, in an attempt to analyze, question and understand its past, present and uncertain future.
