The film was selected at Semaine de la Critique at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival. A poetic blending of the personal and the political, “Skies of Lebanon” combines live action with animation to create a vivid picture of Lebanon, inspired by the family history of the director. Using stories told to her by her grandmother on life during the Lebanese Civil War, Mazlo crafts a touching and heart-breaking story of love during wartime.
