Heaven Beneath My Feet

Sandra Madi, 90 minutes, Documentary, in Arabic, German and English with English subtitles, Lebanon/France/Jordan, 2020

Followed by a discussion with the director.

“Heaven Beneath My Feet” is the story of three Lebanese women, who are struggling to preserve their right to keep the custody of their children in a country where secular civil law is yet to exist.

Lina, who lives in the rural town of Baumholder, Germany, passes her days waiting for the decision of German officials on her residency permit, so she could reunite with her five-year-old son whom she hasn’t seen since the father came up with a way to keep him out of her reach; Fatima who lives with her parents in the Southern suburb of Beirut and continuously refuses to give up her four-year-old son after rebelling against the religious authority court and preferred prison instead of obeying their laws; and Zainab from the Beqaa mountains who completely lost her son after her divorce and couldn’t win any legal battle to see him, lives her days hanging to a bit of hope.

The film had its World Premiere at Vision De Reel – Media Library Section. It has won the Special Jury Prize at Aswan International Women Film Festival, 1st Prize for Best Film at Hollywood Silver Screen Film Festival and Best Feature Documentary Film at Sevil International Women’s Documentary Film Festival. The film also participated in The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) as well as Beirut International Women Film Festival.
