Imprisoned Splendour – Original Film
Link expires after 5 days of purchasing
Join Daizy Gedeon and Omar Sharif as they reveal the complex and cosmopolitan charm of Lebanon. A spotlight on their homeland’s tumultuous past but also an homage to the tiny country known as the heart of the Middle East. Is history repeating itself with recent events? Discover your own identity, whether you are Christian, Jew, Muslim or Buddhist, Indian, Somali, American, or Slovenian, Italian, Australian, Colombian or Irish, this is a story for all races, colours and creeds because our identity is not always linked to one nation.
Described by The Australian as a ‘Remarkable and Brilliant Documentary’ this award-winning film achieved critical acclaim across the world. The over-arching Middle East crisis subplot and associated civil war, assassinations, kidnappings, Syrian occupation, Israeli invasion and Palestinian refugee catastrophe narratives are addressed in a factual manner. Rather than just a parochial, Lebanon-centric story, Daizy Gedeon tells a personal tale about “two cities” or, more factually, two countries and two identities and the struggle associated with those dichotomies – this being Daizy’s heritage of Lebanon and her adopted home – Australia.
