Anxious in Beirut

In the ever-present desire to capture, record, and understand Beirut, and by extension himself, Zakaria has been trying to give a coherent story to his city. It is through the intersectionality between the general & the personal, the public & private, the old & young, that we are able to answer: why are we anxious in Beirut?
