Netflix is currently streaming the Lebanese-led homemade docuseries “Glimpses of A Future” that was filmed entirely in the midst of the pandemic.
It features 8 home-based episodes made in collaboration between 8 creative writers and 9 creative movers in Lebanon, France, Iran, Jordan, and the United States.
Filmed using smartphone cameras and voice recorders, the episodes follow words and movements as they envision a future after the pandemic in a production that is so simple yet so profound.
The creative director behind “Glimpses of a Future” Romy Assouad is certainly a force to be reckoned with. She is the mind behind Yaraqa, a Lebanese socio-cultural enterprise that connects dance/movement artists, designers, and business experts to make an impact through movement and dance.
