This has been something I have wanted to do since the first day of film school. I am lucky and proud to call myself both an Australian and Lebanese but having spent 9 years in Lebanon, from age 8 until age 17, means that Lebanon has a very special place in my heart.

I feel like no matter how hard I try I couldn't possibly capture this amazing country's true beauty and essence but I gave it a shot. I only had a three days to film as much of Lebanon as possible. I tried to show a few different sides of Lebanon. Most people I know imagine Lebanon to be a backward conservative society torn by never ending conflict. That can't be further from the truth. The truth is that Lebanon is called 'The Paris of the Middle East' for a reason.

Please enjoy this film and share!
