Désillusionné par sa vie dans la banlieue de Beyrouth, la découverte d’Omar l’attire dans les profondeurs de la ville. Immergé dans un monde si proche et pourtant si isolé de sa réalité qu’il finit par se retrouver à lutter pour garder ses attaches, son sentiment d’appartenance.

L’histoire d’Omar se situe entre le climat de redressement de Beyrouth d’après-guerre dans les années 90 et le sentiment général d’effondrement actuel. Ayant grandi dans la banlieue de Beyrouth, Omar a passé toute son adolescence à vivre dans la périphérie, n’ayant jamais visité les quartiers de la ville ségréguée ni même franchi ses frontières. Sa vie quotidienne est dominée par la banalité, les problèmes financiers de ses parents et un certain manque de motivation ; sa seule échappatoire est le temps qu’il passe à contempler la ville depuis le toit de son école. Jusqu’au jour où, par une froide journée d’hiver, Omar est soudainement témoin de quelque chose d’étrange et de beau. Une sorte de lumière intense, qui traverse la grisaille du paysage de la ville et qui l’incite à s’aventurer dans les profondeurs de la ville. Cette découverte géante l’amène à explorer et à s’immerger dans un monde dont il ne connaissait pas l’existence. Un monde si proche et pourtant si isolé de sa réalité qu’Omar se retrouve à lutter pour garder ses attaches, son sentiment d’appartenance…

Disillusioned with his life in the suburbs of segregated Beirut, Omar’s discovery lures him into the depths of the city. Immersed into a world that is so close yet so isolated from his reality that he eventually finds himself struggling to keep his attachments, his sense of home.

Set between Beirut’s post-war climate of recovery in the 90’s and today’s general sense of crumbling this is Omar’s story. Growing up in Beirut’s suburbs meant that Omar spent his entire teenage years living on the outskirts, having never visited parts of the segregated city or even crossed its borders. His daily life is dominated by the mundane, his parents’ financial problems, and a certain lack of motivation; his only escape being the time he spends gazing at the city from his school’s rooftop. Until, On a cold winter day, Omar unexpectedly witnesses something strange and beautiful. A sort of intense beaming light, shining through the grayness of the city’s landscape, that lures him to venture into the depth of the city. This giant discovery leads him to explore and immerse himself in a world he never knew existed. A world that is so close yet so isolated from his reality that Omar finds himself struggling to keep his attachments, his sense of home…

Since moving abroad to study and work, Ely Dagher has been spending more and more time outside of Lebanon, and his attachment to Beirut Started to become more and more complicated. The overall Narrative of the film is heavily based on Ely’s efforts to understand his changing relationship with the city and it’s life, juxtaposed with the narrative of a teenager’s exciting discovery of this segregated city.

يرسم فيلم المخرج إيلي داغر « موج‘98 » الفائز بجائزة السعفة الذهبية، علاقة البَيروتيين الحاليين المعقدة بمدينتهم المضطربة في صورةٍ جميلة. في أواخر تسعينيات القرن العشرين، يخيب أمل الشاب عمر بحياته في العاصمة اللبنانية حيث الأخبار مزعجةٌ على الدوام ولا يبدو أن أي شيءٍ يتغير إلى الأفضل على الإطلاق. وعندما تجذبه بوابةٌ غامضة تودي به إلى بُعدٍ آخر، يشعر عمر لبعض الوقت بالسلام، لكنه لا يتمكن في نهاية المطاف من الهرب من جاذبية بيروت. فيلم « موج‘98″، الذي يتميز بمزيجٍ آسر من الرسوم المتحركة واللقطات الحية، هو بمثابة تأمل متحرك على النقيض من شعور الضياع في الوطن
