Mounia Akl


La familia Badri ha escapado de Beirut para construir su utopía particular lejos de la polución y la conflictividad de la gran urbe. Pero este oasis de resistencia al capitalismo global se ve amenazado por los avances de un vertedero cercano y las grietas internas dentro de la familia.

In Costa Brava, Lebanon, the free-spirited Badri family escape the overwhelming pollution and social unrest of Beirut by seeking refuge in a utopic mountain home they built for themselves. Unexpectedly, an illegal garbage landfill begins construction right next door. With it comes the very trash and corruption they were trying to escape. As the landfill rises, so do family tensions. The Badris are left with a choice: stay off the grid or leave their idyllic home and face the reality they fled, hoping to stay true to their ideals.
