LYD - NY Premiere

LYD (NY Premiere)

We are proud to co-present LYD at at Firehouse: DCTV’s Cinema for Documentary Film. LYD premieres in NY on Friday April 26th and will screen through Thursday May 2nd. Get your tickets here.

A sci-fi documentary that follows the rise and fall of Lyd – a 5,000-year-old metropolis that was once a bustling Palestinian town until it was conquered when the State of Israel was established in 1948.

As the film unfolds, a chorus of characters creates a tapestry of the Palestinian experience of this city and the trauma left by the massacre and expulsion; while vivid animations envision an alternate reality where the same characters live free from the trauma of the past and the violence of the present.

As the film cuts between fantastical and documentary realities, it ultimately leaves the viewer questioning which future should prevail.
