PIRATE CINEMA RECOMMENDS                                                        
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                
Beirut over and over again / Beyrouth plusieurs fois                            
fundraiser film screening                                                       
Berlin, August 30th, 2020 at Hopscotch Reading Room (open air)                  
door: 8.00 pm, screening: 9.00 pm                                               
                                                                                
TRAILER: https://piratecinema.org/trailers/beirut_2010_04_21.mp4                
                                                                                
The explosions in Beirut on August 4th, 2020 have left at least 180 people      
dead, 6,000 injured and an estimated 300,000 displaced – many have lost family, 
lovers, homes and livelihoods. Protests against the encrusted political system  
represented by the Lebanese government that took place after the catastrophe    
were answered with more violence, tear gas & rubber bullets. A state of         
military emergency was declared and is threatening the freedom to protest and   
stand against a regime that has literally blown its citizens up. Meanwhile, the 
people of Beirut continue cleaning up their city’s streets, mourning their      
dead, worried sick about those that remain unfound and still counting the       
damages.                                                                        
                                                                                
We warmly invite you and your friends to come to an open air screening of short 
films by Hassan Julien Chehouri, Jocelyne Saab, Ghassan Salhab, Mohamed Soueid, 
and Siska to send our support from Berlin to Beirut on August 30th at Hopscotch 
Reading Room.                                                                   
                                                                                
Berlin is one of several cities where this program is taking place – Rotterdam, 
Paris, Marseille, Geneva, Montréal, Hamburg, Osnabrück –, and hopefully many    
more will follow.                                                               
                                                                                
*** If you would like to suggest or organise screenings elsewhere, please get   
in touch with Nour Ouayda (Beirut) and Philip Widmann (Berlin):                 
beirutoverandover@gmail.com                                                     
                                                                                
In solidarity with the people of Beirut, all proceeds from these screenings     
will go towards initiatives that are directly supporting domestic workers,      
refugees, transgender and LGBTQ, offering basic food and rebuilding measures,   
as well as disaster relief for the arts (scroll down for details)
