Flash Back ... ? Ou Ba3dein ? (2007)
A DOCUMENTARY

During the 2006 war in Lebanon, Canada evacuated itscitizens.
The evacuation process was widely criticized and talked about… 

FlashBack wanted to set the record straight after all the turmoil brought about by these events, because beyond this single event, the 2006 war made the Lebanese remember the earlier one; the one so many try to forget and work so hard to protect their children from.

It is this link between the old and the new that Electrochocks wanted to bring to light with a documentary showing how these events were lived by those who were there and how those who were in Montreal followed them closely. 

In doing this documentary, Electrochocks wanted to pay tribute to all the innocent people who pay the price of technological progress, ofpolitical decisions and mishaps and to all those rescue workers who work sohard in saving lives that others try so hard to distroy.

Synopsis

Lebanon.
Lebanon in summer...lives, danses and sings under the sun.
12th of July 2006 : “It’s back” and it muzzles the hope of any possible peace.
It brings back painful memories to those who thought they had finally forgotten; It forbids mindlessness. It becomes present all over again, as a curse... 

War is back in Lebanon. It’s blood-drenched, it’s a punishment for having dared to live...
Beirut is crying its houses, its bridges, its children. War is back and brings with it distress, desolation and grief. 

Its face is still the same and it throws back into the blackened sea those who came for the summer. 

Those who were there and those who lived it through the eyes of their relatives and friends testify and tell how they survived the fear of losing their lives and their loved ones.
