Promo News - 19th Sept 2018

Jessy Moussallem has written and directed a new film for songs from electronic artist Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons' new album Heart Of Sky, which opens up a little-known world - the farming communities that cultivate and harvest Lebanese Red hashish in the Bekaa valley, between the mountains of eastern Lebanon - and plays in the spaces between documentary and fiction.

It's a moving portrait of the people who work the fields of the illegal industry, and the realities of their lives. But Lebanese filmmaker Moussalem adds a level of cinematic experimentation to the raw intimacy. She was given free rein to work with the music of Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons, using sounds and samples. The film, a co-production between Phantasm Paris, Clandestino Films and Caviar London, features numerous tracks from their new album.
