Waves '98 from Beaverandbeaver on Vimeo.

Directed by Ely Dagher

The short was awarded the Palme D'or in the short flm category at the closing ceremony on the 25th of May in Cannes, France.

Waves '98 is as much a narrative film as it is a personal visual essay dedicated to Dagher's hometown, Beirut.
The film is an artistic exploration of the director's current relation with his Lebanon, his home country, projected through the story of a teenager and set in 1998. Since moving abroad to study and work, Ely Dagher has been spending more and more time outside of Lebanon, and his attachment to Beirut Started to become more and more complicated. The overall Narrative of the film is heavily based on Ely's efforts to understand his changing relationship with the city and it's life, juxtaposed with the narrative of a teenager's exciting discovery of this segregated city.
