This is Not Beirut/ There Was and There Was Not
A personal essay on the popular misrepresentation of Lebanon and Beirut which documents the filmmakers own experiences while working in Lebanon. Working with its own conceptual baggage, the video situates itself between genres in order to better expose commonplace assumptions. The examination is thus the actual complexities of the identities of artist and subject. The result is a critical engagement of the disparities and disjunctions arising on site.
