Lebanon, Between Two Evils

Production: Off The Grid, TRT World
Country: Turkey
Year: 2021
Duration: 26'
Directed by: Mouhssine Ennaimi

Lebanon – once dubbed “the Switzerland of the Middle East – is falling apart, and so are its people. A scenario that becomes a perfect ecosystem for the proliferation of criminal groups.

Today the Lebanese lack virtually everything from fuel to medicine. But one widely available commodity is there: weapons. Made by the Off the Grid team, this documentary tells how rising poverty has caused a surge in violence in a country where living conditions are getting worse by the day.
