Justice for the victims, vengeance against the regime

On August 4, 2020, 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate detonated in the port of Beirut and the entire city was covered by the disaster. Protests following the detonation were suppressed. A military state of emergency was declared and has since threatened the freedom to stand up against a regime that literally blew up the people. In a solidarity screening, Nour Ouayda (Beirut) and Philip Widmann (Berlin) show short films by Hassan Julien Chehouri, Danielle Arbid, Mohamed Soueid & Ghassan Salhab, Jocelyne Saab.

The collected donations go to the following organisations:
