Cairo Cinema Days 2
Beirut, the day of the World Cup. A woman walks through the relatively quiet streets, people are indoors watching the game, or going about their domestic business. But there seems to be a disruption in the television signal, as isolated moments of mild chaos on the rooftops evidence. Then the still of the hot summer’s day is torn apart by an air attack, another interruption to be absorbed, another minor irritation Beirutis refuse to allow to quash their spirits.
