West Beirut is a drama by Lebanese filmmaker Ziad Doueiry that paints a dramatic picture of children’s lives during the Lebanese civil-war. The film begins as the first events which sparked the Lebanese civil war begin in April, 1975. Doueiry represents the partitioned Beirut along sectarian lines through the lives of Tarek and his friend Omar. While Tarek makes Super 8 movies with his friend, the backdrop of war and division haunt the camera. As he comes of age, the war moves inexorably from adventure to tragedy.
