The world’s largest streaming service Netflix has added a dedicated playlist entitled ‘Made In Lebanon’ to share fascinating stories from Lebanon.
Netflix’s collection comprises 34 Lebanese films, highlighting the raw talent of Lebanese creators for the world to see.
The list includes films of acclaimed directors like Maroun Baghdadi, Nadine Labaki, Ziad Doueiri, Lucien Bourjeilym Philippe Aractingi, Randa Chahal Sabagh, and many more.
The carefully curated selection includes titles such as Baghdadi’s Beyrouth ya Beyrouth and The Little Wars, which will be streaming for the very first time, while others like Capernaum, Heaven Without People, Caramel, and Very Big Shot are already available on the service.
“The ‘Made in Lebanon’ collection pays tribute to the Lebanese creative community, which has made an incredible contribution to the region’s entertainment and cultural milieu,” stated Netflix in a press release.
21 films in the ‘Made In Lebanon’ collection will be available worldwide with 13 other only available in the MENA region.
Netflix is providing a platform for Lebanese directors, actors, and creatives to shine and share their works of passion with movie lovers around the globe.
This positive gesture comes after the entertainment streaming service announced $500,000 in emergency relief funds to support Lebanon’s vibrant and worthy TV and film community.
