OPEN DOORS: To A City that Keeps Rebuilding Itself

2020 - Film (29 min)
Beirut 






The night of August 4th 2020, and for the 12 days following, I process the aftermaths of an explosion that left half of Beirut in ruins. From the streets and into the intimacy of people’s homes, I film to process, how a catastrophe can bring a whole society to work together with a common vision, rebuilding a city that continues to destroy itself.




Filmed and Edited by Dima Mabsout
Music backdrop by Rami Chahine and Chebl Saade.

 





















THE FILM WAS FEATURED IN A COMMUNUNITY FUNDRAISING EVENT

ORGANIZED BY FRIENDS IN CATE HILL ORCHARD IN VERMONT, USA.



THE MONEY RAISED WAS SENT TO SELF-ORGANIZED YOUTH GROUPS IN BEIRUT

TO FIX BROKEN DOORS.
