عَوْدٌ على طرابلس في ثقافتِها ومُمارساتِها السينمائيَّة
Oct 18 - 27, 2019 @ Warche 13 - Tripoli

"TripoliScope, In Search of Tripoli's Cinema Culture" is "A Developing Essay Exhibition by UMAM D&R" curated by Nathalie Rosa Bucher that was prepared over the course of the summer of 2019, one year after UMAM D&R rescued the archive of the Société Commerciale Cinémathographique Tripoli Liban (SCCTL).

The exhibition was set up at the Warche 13 – Art and Civic Space, Al Mina, Tripoli and primarily consisted of documents and objects put together from the SCCTL collection. Arranged thematically, the displayed material touched on the company itself and the films it screened at the cinemas it managed, covering all genres popular in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, ranging from Arabic to Indian, European, Kung Fu, and even erotic, to name a few. Through company records, information could be gained about the distributors who sent the films to Tripoli, most of the time from Beirut, while financial records such as bank invoices provided a glimpse at the financial significance of the cinema industry.
