Dear Lebanon is a movie showing Lebanese teenagers’s views on Bombings, Religion and Politics. I want to believe that the new generations will make a change in the right direction and rebel against the corrupted political class that’s been ruling and ruining the country for years but I don’t see it happening anytime soon.
What does this constant insecurity mean for them? What are their thoughts on religion and politics? To what extent do they feel personally affected by the bombings?
Together with a team of eight youths between the ages of 15 and 18, film producer Raphael Schanz set off on a journey in search of answers. During the course of seven weeks he accompanied them through the streets of Beirut and discussed the points in which they felt their wishes clashed with the crude reality. This 30 minute documentary features youths’ ambivalent love for their home country. Which role do teenagers see for themselves in Lebanon? How can they succeed in making their voices heard?
