Come As I Rise
LB 2009

Come As I Rise was filmed in January 2009 during the Ashura ritual in Nabatiyeh. The ritual is generally regarded as closely bound up with local history; a way of dealing with the past and evoking the future, full of torment and lamentation. Yet Kinda Hassan seeks neither to document nor to analyse. She throws herself into the thick of it, encountering eye to eye the men who are beating each other to a pulp. “Bathed in pathos, this film is kinetic poetry.” (Kinda Hassan)
