Film: ESR 3 Rayane Al-Rammal



We are getting closer to the weekend with the interesting and well done film of our ESR Rayane Al-Rammal. Her #research tackles the artistic renaissance that took place during the recent and ongoing Lebanese uprisings (October 2019 - ). Rayane is asking: How are digital artivistic forms of self-expression inspired by the revolution? And how do they circulate online?


Enjoy Rayane's (directing) work and have a nice weekend.​
