The play "Plain Secret" was performed in Baalbeck's Bacchus temple in October, 2016 . The play's script grew from a seven-day workshop run by Zoukak Theater Company and the Association for the Promotion and Exhibition of the Arts in Lebanon (APEAL), who issued an open-call for 10 Baalbeck residents over the age of 40 to participate in the project.This week "Plain Secret," Roy Dib's film documenting the Zoukak's workshop and the play that emerged from it, debuted at the Metropolis Cinema-Sofil. Originally commissioned to make a 20-minute documentary, Dib decided he wanted to show more than just the play and workshops and give a more personal angle on the process. The project thus evolved into an hourlong film.Every day Dib would take one or two participants aside and ask them to take him to a place in Baalbeck that was significant to them and to explain why.In keeping with the project's idea that art should be universal and accessible to anyone interested, Dib says his documentary will eventually be available online, free of charge.
