From a City’s Heartbeat to a Character’s Psyche

A Master Class with Sound Designer Rana Eid

Moderated by Rabih El-Khoury

Acclaimed Lebanese sound designer Rana Eid has always been keen on exploring the conception of intricate soundscapes all over the Arab region. Through the three films that ALFILM presents in its 15th edition, Eid addresses designing sounds for the cities of Khartoum in Goodbye Julia (Fiction, Sudan), Aden in The Burdened (Fiction, Yemen) and Mahdia in Machtat (documentary, Tunisia), but also finding the proper sounds of/for the protagonists of the three female-driven films, all battling against patriarchal societies.
