I went around Beirut and made a series of short films about the people I met and the things they do. Basically, I pulled out my camera, sat back, and just watched what happened. I may go back to Beirut sometime soon to finish the project, as the initial idea was to link these glimpses of life into more of a cohesive whole. However, for the time being I’ll be doing rough edits and publishing them on my YouTube and Vimeo channels.
