Synopsis

On a Beirut beach, littered with washed up cans, Lili and Michel meet. Perhaps they know each other from before. As they struggle to piece together the fragments of an uncertain past, memories emerge: an act of terrorism, an explosion and the disappearance of a child, Elena. Woven throughout these fragments is the voice of the legendary film-maker Masao Adachi, who recounts his own experience of a weeping Beirut. THE UGLY ONE is an experimental film that takes a hard look at contemporary Lebanese society and reflects on the nature of the documentary.
