A century ago Anbara Salam stood before a crowded lecture hall, showed her face and caused an uproar. "Anbara," a theater play drawn from Salam's dairies and directed by her granddaughter Aliya Khalidi, masterfully recreates pivotal moments in the life of one of the Levant's feminist pioneers. Between them lies a scrim (a screen that seems translucent or solid, depending on the lighting) where the two forms converge.It also acts as a screen, upon which Khalidi projects black-and-white re-enactments of the public response to Salam's exploits.When Anbara (Nazha Harb) steps on stage, she embodies her character completely.The scrim is used time and time again to capture significant moments in that era.Theater and cinema collude in producing a glimpse of history that immerses the viewer in a long-forgotten era.
