Films and spaces have the potential to intervene in the relationship of power, violence, and liberation. This book examines the cinematic methods of militant cinema in the context of decolonization and liberation struggles. Sandra Schäfer takes her own artistic work in film as a basis and focuses on two projects of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah: Mleeta, the Museum of Resistance Tourism and the reconstruction of the Beirut district Haret Hreik that was bombed by the Israeli military in 2006. On the occasion of the publication, further works will be shown that explore the impact of the civil war and neoliberal urban development in Beirut as memory work. Helene Kazan reanimates the domestic interior she and her parents were forced to leave during the civil war and Marwa Arsanios contrasts photographs of her childhood home with those of the reconstruction of Beirut's center and the speculation on the city’s outskirts.
