Shatila's Whirlpool
Shatila's Whirlpool | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanJust as a military commander explains the battlefield and his plan of attack by sketching out a rough military map, Maher Abi Samra's film begins with a short but intense explanation of the history and geography of the Palestinian camp of Shatila, first established in 1949; a kilometer long and 600 meters wide. Shatila is above all a place where inside and outside blend into one another, and chairs wait for the weight of the unemployed.

We can tell how old our newspapers are by looking at the satellite dishes on our roofs
We can tell how old our newspapers are by looking at the satellite dishes on our roofs | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanIt is as though the old laws of censorship have never changed. The taboos of today are nearly identical to those enumerated by Ramiz Serkis almost a century ago. It's as though the censors never had the time to review the way they work..
 
We, Lebanese...
We, Lebanese... | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanWe Lebanese are constantly in need of someone to remind us of what sets our country apart. The Arab novelists who met in Cairo a few weeks ago plumped for ‘greatness’; i.e. that its people were able to topple a government they opposed (a government which has since been reconstituted by its president). Others feel its limitless potential, a place where Arabs from across the region make their way to undreamt-of success. At other times, it can appear to be a place of temptation, a country where everything is permitted and forbidden at one and the same time.

Lebanon’s new miracle
Lebanon’s new miracle | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanOne of the main surprises of the Lebanese opposition rallies that transformed Martyrs' Square into Freedom Square was that women--housewives, students and office workers--took part on an equal footing with men, albeit less prominently and in lesser numbers.From the very first demonstration women began arriving in huge numbers, spontaneously and totally unexpected. Their enthusiasm and unprecedented presence at these events broke with the conventions of party political, union and "popular" demonstrations that women traditionally stayed away from.

A New Generation is Demonstrating In Beirut
A New Generation is Demonstrating In Beirut | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanThe death of ex-Prime Minister Rafik Al-Hariri has lead to unexpected reactions in his country. The disappearance of the man responsible for Beirut’s reconstruction has created a consensus that no living Lebanese political leader has yet managed to achieve. After the shock, and the mourning for someone who is now being called in the press “the martyr Al-Hariri”, a new generation of Lebanese people is appearing in the country’s squares and streets, carrying the Lebanese flag and reacting to too many years of occupation.
 
How will the wheels turn without his touch?
How will the wheels turn without his touch? | babelmed | women - migration - mediterraneanI came across Hagg Nasir, crying on the stairs. A friend was holding him tight and helping him descend. When he saw me he said, “he was a mountain, and they leveled him.” I started to mumble back the words of comfort we’d all started using once we knew that the convoy had been bombed and Al-Hariri killed. Yet as I spoke, it struck me that Hagg Nasir’s words had a brevity and precision that would be hard to match.
