ENOUGH Lebanon's Darkest Hour



Documentary by Daizy Gedeon second feature documentary
Australia  june 2021 90 minutes (in post)
One of Bruno Chatelin's BEST FOR FESTS Cannes Market Premiere July 13, Palais H 11:30

ENOUGH! Lebanon’s Darkest Hour follows Australian-Lebanese filmmaker Daizy Gedeon’s personal and independent introspection into how her ancestral homeland, the place her family was forced to flee in the 1970s because of the Civil War, has ended up in a state of complete catastrophe. It is a story of awakening in which Daizy is forced to abandon her idealism about Lebanon and face the cold, harsh truth about the country’s dark underbelly which is its most sinister enemy.

Daizy prosecutes the case against the corrupt political class which has reduced a proud people to beg for garbage collection instead of greatness and negotiate potholes rather than peace.

ENOUGH! is the plea and the prayer, the feeling and fierce determination of the 4.5 million Lebanese in Lebanon as well as the 16 million members of the Lebanese diaspora scattered around the world, whose hearts continue to bleed for a homeland they are desperate to return to and so deeply want to believe in...once again.

ABOUT THE BETTER WORLD FUND

This endowment fund created for women's rights, education, children and the preservation of the oceans takes advantage of major international festivals to ensure that cinematographic art is used in the service of great social and humanitarian causes.

 

A mastermind on the theme of Ethical Gold was held in the morning in the auditorium of the Eden Hotel, with Ghana as the country of honor, in the presence of Minister Dr. Okyere Darko-Mensah. This mastermind benefited from the institutional support of the United Nations, the OECD, Cerem de Monaco and the Green Cross.

 

In the evening, a Gala dinner took place on the 3.14 Beach. The benefits will be donated to the Lebanese René Moawad Foundation, which was represented by Michel Moawad.

This Foundation supports the children of Lebanon by offering them education, school materials, meals and medical follow-up.

 

The ceremony hosted by Manuel Collas de La Roche, president and founder of the Better World Fund, with actress and activist Kiera Chaplin, opened with a special guest, Marcelo Viera, new Real Madrid captain, who offered a signed ball as well as a shirt and shoes which will be auctioned for the René Moawad Foundation.

 

An ethical fashion show by Eileen Akbaraly, founder of the eco-responsible brand Made For A Woman, and Pietro Paradiso was then presented. This Madagascan brand proposes pieces created by women for women, with the main objective of improving their lives and allowing them to flourish.

 

During the dinner, seven “Union-Life International awards” were offer to personalities whose works or actions had a social impact and a solidarity impact in 2020:

 

Eileen Akbaraly, fashion designer ‘Made For A Woman’:  Best commitment

Dr Sohan Roy, Aries Group (India) : Best commitment

« The Sound of Us », documentary by Chris Gero, Filmfestivals.com “Movie that Matters” Award

Barry Alexander Brown, director, editor (USA), “Lifetime Achievement Award”

The Movie That Matters Awards are created by local french artist PAB with interpretation of the film posters.

The Unity trophies were created by Wilfried Grenier and Karine Elkobbi they symbolize the benevolent union of two human beings without discrimination of origin, sex, religion with in the center the light symbolizing the awakening of consciousness, knowledge and wisdom, and on the sides the imprint of two hearts which transmit a message of unconditional love.
