Tesoro; Pepe Mar’s Love Letter to the Frost

Costa Brava, Lebanon

Thru Thu 08/18/2022

In Costa Brava, Lebanon, the free-spirited Badri family escape the overwhelming pollution and social unrest of Beirut, seeking refuge in a utopic mountain home they've built for themselves. Things take a turn, however, when an illegal garbage landfill begins construction right next door. With it comes the very trash and corruption they'd sought to escape. As the landfill rises, so do family tensions. The Badris—Nadine Labaki (Capernaum) and Saleh Bakri (Wajib)—are left with a choice: stand their ground or leave their idyllic home. Costa Brava, Lebanon is about what it takes for one family to reaffirm their commitment to their values and to each other. Mounia Akl's stunning feature debut premiered at Venice and won major prizes at the Toronto and BFI London Film Festivals. Her unique gift with actors is evident in the nuanced performances she elicits from her cast.
