Beirut Cultural Short Films: The Dancer

The first rough cut of an extended film project in Beirut.

Support VBJ’s writing on this blog:

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.

    I used to have a teacher in university who did this but he was more into making his body look like a tree. Kind of dumb. But what this girl is pretty cool. It’s like she’s actually telling a story with her movements.
