Draining The Well Of Young Dreams, 2021 In recent years Libanon had to endure an accumulation of crises in which the ongoing covid-pandemic and the explosion in the harbour last year increased the economic and political crisis. Though the future doesn't look bright, young adults keep chasing their dreams and try to find their way in society. The documentary 'Draining the well of young dreams' gives a portrait of these young adults alongside city landscapes who image the current situation in Beirut. These adolescents are on a thin line between rashness, specific to their age, and a sense of responsibility. By starting from the perspectives of young graduates, this photographic documentary tries to give insights into the country’s current situation.
