Take a Trip


Beirut is a short animated film where the main focus is not Beirut the city itself, but unfolds in it, as the main character finds herself an outsider in her own environment.
The movie plays with the visual representation of the city. Beirut as a ruin; in a mixed media collage of today’s city in what seems to be a post-apocalyptic time, or simply a deviated version of everyday Beirut, where the water resources happen to have run completely dry.
