TO CLOSE YOUR EYES
AND SEE FIRE
 -
COMING SOON

The first feature film by Nicola von Leffern and Jakob Carl Sauer is a long term documentary about Beirut's inhabitants, who are furious about needing to play the role of the phoenix. Clean, rebuild and move on, an all too familiar feeling. Even the big explosion of the city in 2020 did not bring about the desired change during the crisis of a century. To Close Your Eyes and See Fire is a poetic mosaic about the vacuum in life after tragedy.
