Documentary / Short

This poetic film is an organic act of love for Lebanon. In November 2019, Shoufani visited Beirut not knowing what the uprising on the streets would hold. The streets held their dreams close, as the energy from the thousands of people on those streets exuded feelings of camaraderie, power, unity, and cohesive empathy. The film celebrates the Lebanese people protesting for a better life.
