The documentary Beirut After The Blast premiered during a unique metaverse screening, at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre, UAE.
Directed by the activist and witness of the Beirut blast Fahed Abu Salah, the documentary is an MContent production, the first Watch2earn content ecosystem, and a pioneer of Web3 cinema.
Through the documentary, Abu Salah aimed to focus on the blast’s humanitarian side while showcasing the corruption and negligence within the Lebanese government and highlighting the lack of accountability.
Beirut After The Blast was filmed over fifty days, and features interviews with several people directly affected by the blast, along with activists and lawyers who are demanding justice for the victims.
“Two years on this documentary is my attempt to ensure the people of Beirut are not forgotten. If we all stand together, we will bring Lebanon, the Lebanese people, and children back to where they deserve to be,” said the director Fahed Abu Salah.
After the screening, MContent launched a collection of NFTs, comprising artworks by Lebanese and international artists, for which profits will reportedly be donated to those affected by the explosion.
The documentary will be available to the public on MContent’s app and website.
