*film is in a final editing phase and postproduction: color correction, stabilization, noise reduction, and audio mixing


Detours  is a hybrid film project that deals with issues of dislocation, points of views and memory, and more broadly with impressions of recent events in Lebanon, and functions as a memory footprint of the author. Through the position of “peripheral vision”, which is practiced in the film both narratively (as an side observer) and in the media sense (hesitation to record direct “central images” of events) I build a narrative of sensory impressions, orientation, media note, memory recreation, an image that remained outside the frame. The work is not a documentation or analysis of current policies and turbulent events but an experience of disorientations within them. All audio and visual material is recorded in Lebanon from 2019 – 2021.
