Chloe felt intrigued by why her grandmother chose to stay in Lebanon for 10 years of war when she could have easily left.
“I find that it’s quite rare to show people who don’t want to leave a country, we always show those who want to leave,” said Chloe upon the release of the film. “It’s much easier in terms of scriptwriting. It’s very complicated to talk about the love you can have for a country… Because it’s not rational.”
“Skies of Lebanon” isn’t Mazlo’s first work revolving around Lebanon. She has also directed a short film by the name of “Deyrouth” (2010), discussing Chloe’s own journey in quest of her roots as she looks to address her identity problems.
