Lebanon’s missing

Photographer Dalia Khamissy attempts to uncover what happened to the thousands of people who were kidnapped during the Lebanese civil war.

She meets Amina Hassan Banat.

In 1982 Christian militants rounded up four of Amina’s sons – the youngest was just 13 years old.

She never saw them again.

How does Dalia capture Amina’s chaotic memories, and the relentless hope and fear that she’s had since the day they disappeared?

What answers does Assaad Chaftari – a man who was involved in the disappearances – have for mothers like Amina?
