The street art scene of Beirut is probably the most sophisticated of the entire Middle East. Lebanon was torn by the civil war during the ’80s, when stencils and graffiti were used as propaganda by the various militias. Today the street art scene evolved, although social and political issues are still dominant in many murals. In this short documentary, we discover how some Lebanese artists are trying to use street art as a way to reunite.
