Kash Kash - Without Feathers We Can't Live

Galaxy Grand Cinemas, Galaxy Center, Blvd. Camil Chamoun

In the presence of Lea Najjar - Director


My hometown, Beirut, is torn apart by a corrupt political elite, anti-government protests, and one of the biggest explosions of the 21st century. But above the roofs of the city, I discovered an unexpected bearer of hope: the pigeon game of chance "Kash Hamam".
Every evening, in the golden sun above the labyrinth streets, the sky populates, and all over the city swarms fly out of their cages. Their flight follows the choreography of an ancient tradition. Each player holds their own flock and lets it circle above his house, with the chance to lure the pigeons of the neighbors onto his roof, in order to catch it and expand his flock. Then there is “Kash”.
