A Feeling Greater Than Love in São Paulo

São Paulo film festival includes Arab movies

The 41st São Paulo International Film Festival begins this Thursday (19) and runs until November 1. Fifteen Arab productions are included in the program.

“One of the highlights at the Berlin International Film Festival, the Lebanese documentary A Feeling Greater Than Love (Shu’our akbar min el hob), by director Mary Jirmanus Saba, go back to a point in time in Lebanon’s history in which the country, narrowly, avoided a social revolution. In the 1970s, two strikes by workers urged the population, but were cut short by the civil war. The movie mixes images of the Lebanese politically-charged cinema with interviews of the workers and farmers in the current times, and asks a question to the past: how to transform the present?”
