Though it didn't receive a proper theatrical release here, the film's lyrical interplay of images and sound make it one of Lebanon's more striking releases of 2017 .The documentary takes the form of a daughter's letter to an absent parent – its voice-over being addressed to the unnamed "You" of Eid's deceased father.The film's opening minutes of voice-over emerge from Eid's sound design and play out against a black screen. After obliging the audience to listen, the film opens its eyes upon a busy nighttime autostrade.In March the film was one of four recent Arab features selected to be projected alongside the Beirut Cinema Platform.In Lebanon's intimate film scene, Rana Eid is well-known as a sound editor and co-founder of the audio postproduction company db STUDIOS.The problem is that this footage – or shots identical to it – has appeared in so much recent local production.
