Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

SHORT SUMMARY:

This creative feature documentary will explore the nuances of life in the city within a context of poverty and survival, specifically through Tripoli's Sunday Market. Usually treated as "others", even between inhabitants of the city itself, the people in these marginal areas lack a voice of their own, but they deserve to be heard and known.

This place holds its own culture, its own personal stories and histories, that nobody has cared to listen to or told yet. As a small place that people look past, it represents not only its specificity but also it can be an icon of a thousand other small, unrepresented places and people. On top of that, it is going to disappear. And then, nobody will be able to tell that story.

We followed five main dwellers of the market with their intimate stories, their regrets, their joy, and their struggles.
We also documented the market itself from its opening till after its closing, and we filmed the life of one of the dwellers which actually live in the market.

WHAT WE NEED:

The documentary's shooting is done.
The postproduction (Color Grading, DCP, Subtitles) are provided by "The Postoffice"

What we need at the moment is to complete it by having money to pay for the Editing, Sound Design, Music Composition, and ensure some money to submit it to international film festivals.


THE IMPACT

We believe that this market is not only a place where people visit to buy things from, but it is a reflection of a forgotten and neglected society. So we're hoping to shed light on it's diversity and culture specially that many nationalities exist in this market.
This might be the only documentation of the market because soon this market will be moved to another place. This is not the first time that this market moves and all its memories become forgotten, because years ago the market was positioned under the Tripoli Castle and not one photo or report can be found about it. So i'm hoping to leave a historical and cultural documentation of this place before it is gone.
