Why Beirut Blues?

  • My first encounter with the Middle East was in Beirut. I now live in Ramallah and work in a Palestinian PR and media company. Personally I am worried about the distorted view and the collective imagery back at home of the Middle East and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in particular. My interest in Beirut Blues is therefore to spark the curiosity of friends and family on this part of the world, on which so much has been written but on which so often we lack to see the more human side to it.
