(1979, DCP, 109m, Algeria/Lebanon) dir Farouk Beloufa w/Yasmine Khlat. Farouk Beloufa’s only feature film follows a group of leftist friends in Beirut in the early 1970s. Larbi, a young Algerian journalist reporting in Lebanon, is swept up in the whirlwind of events following the January 1975 battle of Kfarchouba. As Beirut sinks into chaos, Larbi meets a young singer, Nahla, who loses her voice in the middle of a performance at the Piccadilly theater. An exploration of war through photography and cinematography, Nahla is also a love story. Starring Yasmine Khlat and featuring a soundtrack composed by renowned Lebanese musician Ziad Rahbani.

This restoration maintains some of the French subtitles from the original film print. They are often visible under the English subtitles, and they can be a bit distracting. Mizna wants to make sure our audience is aware of this issue, but we also want to note that we are so excited to share a version of this film with English subtitles at all. The images look spectacular, and they make up the sometimes inconveniently placed subtitles.
