Title: Lebanon… Imprisoned Splendour
Author: Daizy Gedeon
Precis: Using broad but effective strokes, Australian journalist and filmmaker, Daizy Gedeon, attempts to dispel the negative images that surround her birth country. “Your Lebanon is an international problem yet to be solved/Mine is calm enchanted valleys, murmurs with church bells and whispering brooks.” The expansive words of Lebanese poet, Kahil Gibran, as read by Omar Sharif, lie at the heart of, Gedeon’s travelogue as she attempts to dispel the negative images that surround her birth country, while coming to terms with her own divided identity.
