France, Lebanon | Arabic | 15' | Fiction

A crane operator in Beirut volunteers to cover a shift on one of the most dangerous cranes, where he is able to find his freedom.

Cute and quirky with a hint of kitsch. Not the architecture, of course. It’s a very serious matter and quite frankly, astounding. Nostalgia comes into play as we reminisce of design dreams gone awry. Persistence and vision lead us to a beautiful reveal of a historic Los Angeles structural feat. Who better to take us on this journey than Claude, a Boston Terrier with a sassy accent. Kidding? No. Never about architecture, my dear.
