Ziad Kalthoum ustvari močan esej o tem, kaj pomeni življenje v izgnanstvu v svetu, ki ga je raztrgala vojna, brez možnosti vrnitve domov. / Ziad Kalthoum composes a striking essay on what it means to live in exile in a war-torn world with no possibilities to return home.

Portret delavcev v izgnanstvu. Sočutno srečanje z ljudmi, ki so izgubili svojo preteklost in prihodnost, so pa zaprti v ponavljajoči se sedanjosti. Ziad Kalthoum ustvari esejski dokumentarec o sirskih gradbincih, ki v Bejrutu gradijo nebotičnike na ruševinah, ki so ostale po libanonski državljanski vojni. Istočasno v Siriji razstreljujejo njihove hiše. Zaradi policijske ure po službi ne smejo zapuščati gradbišča. Vsak dan jih v njihovi luknji pod nebotičnikom preganjajo novice iz domovine in spomini na vojno. Nemi in zaprti v cementno podzemlje morajo zdržati do naslednjega dne, ko z razbijanjem in varjenjem utapljajo svoje more.

A portrait of workers in exile. An empathetic encounter with people who have lost their past and their future, locked in the recurring present. Ziad Kalthoum creates an essay documentary of Syrian construction workers building new skyscrapers in Beirut on the ruins caused by the Lebanese civil war. At the same time their own houses are being bombed in Syria. A Curfew prohibits them from leaving the construction site after work. Every night in their pit below the skyscraper the news from their homeland and the memories of the war chase them. Mute and imprisoned in the cement underground, they must endure until the new day arrives where the hammering and welding drowns out their nightmares.
