Several rockets, which became larger and more powerful with time, were launched from the hills surrounding Beirut by a group of scientists, university students and army experts.

Are these the only images?

Thank God, we have these ones.

I'm from Khayzaran, North of Saida.

I had important archives.

When Israel occupied the town

my brothers burned half of them.

Out of fear.

When did you last see this photo?


50 years ago.

Maybe 60.

You see, that's it, rocket number 4.

Look at this crowd...

Can you see Harry?

I'm looking for him.

I'm looking for all of them.

That's a cameraman

filming for the news.

Do you remember anyone?

No, I don't know.

I look at this photo and I think:

"What an idiot!"

I photographed the moving smoke

and not the rocket.

But it's artful.

Artful would be to show

at least part of the rocket.

But I cut it off.

This one is perfect.

This is the good picture

this is the one.

The others can't work.

This one is the one for the cover.

This one or the other one.

Of course, we should crop it.

So there might be news footage

of the rocket launches.

Full of hope, we head to the Lebanese

National Cinema Center's archives.

We'd never been to the Center

even though several of our 35mm films

are kept there.

We're received by Zafer Azar

a critic, writer and cinephile

who's in charge of printed

documentation of Lebanese cinema.

But the head of the film archives

isn't there.

He resigned.

And considering the state

of the site, we understand why!


Look at this.

It's stupid.

It's a crime.

Some of the films

are originals without copy.

Unique documents

that can no longer be found.

There are old films

I remember them well.

There are newsreels.

- All those are newsreels?

- Yes.

They were shown in movie theaters.

Before the film.

It was before the war.

We were young, we loved cinema.

That's how it starts.

We would see this at the movies.

It's the same period.

The 60's.
