RANDA CHAHAL SABBAG
A pioneer in Lebanese cinema, the filmmaker Randa Chahal Sabbag body of work was never made accessible in her country of origin. In 2008, she passed away. Ten years later, we organized and launched a full retrospective of her movies across Lebanon.
The retrospective officially begun in April 2018 with a screening at Tripoli International Film Festival, which honored her lifetime achievements as a daughter of the city. It then culminated in the capital Beirut, where the retrospective was organized over a week and was articulated around a series of events including screenings, roundtables and exhibitions.
Storm Studio was in charge of the organisation and production of the retrospective as well as the creative direction for communication material. The retrospective next steps are on going for events in France and the U.S.
