The printed tarpaulins in our urban landscapes have replaced the painted canvas of ancient theatres. Every pedestrian becomes an extra in an ongoing scene. In Beirut, Lebanon, like in other countries at war, this ideal set covers ancient neighbourhoods which are perpetually being rebuilt. Three women compare their experiences of the city, their moving about, their connexions to image, conversations, representation. (GG)
