In Lebanon, since 2019, millions of demonstrators have denounced a corrupt political class, responsible for an unprecedented economic crisis. Throughout the territory, the Lebanese demonstrate without distinction of religion or community. “One, one, one! The Lebanese people are one! “. For a year, from the very first evening of the revolution until the takeover of the ministries after the explosion of the port of Beirut, this unprecedented surge of revolt, from Beirut to Baalbek via Tripoli, was filmed, following the destiny of revolutionaries whom everything opposes, but whom the revolution will bring together.
