In his non-academic Make me stop smoking, Mroué reconstructs the radical heterogeneous landscape of Lebanon, destroyed by crises and wars, with the aid of countless anonymous and personal documents, videos, photos, newspaper clipping and eyewitness reposts, that he pieces together to create a complex system of meandering narrations.
In so doing, he questions the veracity and cogency of the archive documents as much as he negotiates the validity of the reconstruction “reality”.
What happens when a lost landscape is re-appropriated through its archived representation?
Produced by Ashkal Alwan – Beirut, with the support of International short film festival Oberhuasen, 2006.
