3 Logical Exits (2020) [Short]

Denmark,UK,Lebanon (MIFF 2020 )
Director: Mahdi Fleifel

Director Mahdi Fleifel returns to Lebanon’s Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp to check in on Reda, the subject of his earlier film A Man Returned (MIFF 2016).

Cutting between the present in despondent black-and-white and footage of the past in lively colour, 3 Logical Exits frames Reda’s deteriorating situation as emblematic of the despair and difficulties plaguing young Palestinians throughout the camp. This Rotterdam-premiering film is a harrowing reminder that, for these refugees, there may really be no ‘ways out’.

Warning: Contains footage of a covered-up corpse and gun violence.
