Passport - a film by Yasser Kassab


“Beirut - city of false promises”

Beirut, the city of war and the gateway to Europe for Syria's youth, is actually harsher than expected. The doors of the embassies are not wide open. As Lebanon is not. It is full of obstacles and boundaries, empty and scary streets, to find a place to live is utmost difficult, and the high cost of living make an attempt to start a new life in this city almost impossible.

This film deals with the disappointment and frustration of Rima, the main person of this documentary film that explores the expected dreams and harsh realities of leaving, belonging, going back from and to something that you will call home.      

This film has received the support of Bidayyat's documentary grant 2013
