Green Line – The cat-child

Sylvie Ballyot

With the help of miniature sets and figurines, Fida confronts ex-militiamen who operated during her childhood in West Beirut, the same militiamen who claimed to protect her but who actually frightened her so much.

Sylvie Ballyot

After having gratuated from the Fémis film school, Sylvie Ballyot went on exploring a variety of cinematographic forms: diaries, creative documentaries, short and medium-length fictions. Her latest film, Green Line, is the culmination of the process of exploration, both in its formal structure as well as in its theme and territory which she tackled in previous works, the Middle East. With Green Line, she invents her own language, allying realism with dreamlike imagery, and fiction with documentary. Here, she pursues her exploration of the frontier between the individual and the community, between the intimate and the collective.
