Jocelyne Saab, cinéaste témoin de la cinéphilie libanaise
Abstract :
International audience
The work of the Lebanese filmmaker Jocelyne Saab, leader of the "New Lebanese cinema" in the 1970s, offers to question several aspects of the representation of Lebanese cinephilia in local film productions: despite the ravages of war, Lebanese cinephilia has not been buried with cinema theaters under the rubble of Beirut in ruins. A suspended life ( Une vie suspendue, 1985 ), Once upon a time, Beirut (Il était une fois Beyrouth histoire d'une star, 1994) and Dunia, Kiss Me Not On The Eyes (2005) give us the proof of the continuity of this cinephilia over a whole generation.
