    A dreamlike film essay exploring what it means to live in exile in a war-torn world, Ziad Kalthoum's Taste of Cement focuses on Syrian construction workers building a skyscraper in Beirut. While the Lebanese war is over, the Syrian one rages on, and as the workers build a residence for others, their own homes are being shelled mercilessly.

    Arabic with English subtitles. 
    Duration: 85 min.
