From Beirut to ... those who love us

This video letter was made on July 21, 2006 at the studios of Beirut DC, a film and cinema collective which runs the yearly Ayam Beirut Al Cinema'iya Film Festival. This video letter was produced in collaboration with Samidoun, a grassroots gathering of various organizations and individuals who were involved in relief and media efforts from the first day of the Israeli attack on Lebanon. It was also broadcasted at the Biennial of Arab Cinema, organized by the Arab World Institute in Paris.

I am an English student based in London and feel deeply anxious about the future of the Lebanese people. I have no political views I just want your suffering to end. I wish I could do something.Anything.
The video 'From Beiruit to...' has a truly haunting quality. I don't know if it was intentional but I had a strong inner impression that I was reliving the Second World War. I was almost watching a French resistance statement being read out. I'm so sorry my government has done nothing for you. It makes me so angry. Please don't lose hope. Things will change.
