- Beirut Diaries, truth, lies and videos
Singapore International Film Festival
“Critically-acclaimed Palestinian documentary filmmaker Mai Masri headed to Beirut immediately after the assassination of Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in February 2005, spending time with the countless young Lebanese who took to the streets to demonstrate. Masri masterfully gives us a glimpse into how the groups differ on their nation, Israel, Syria and the Hezbollah.”
International Leipzig Festival of Documentary Cinema
“Films such as "Beirut Diaries: Truth, Lies and Video" by director Mai Masri have taken on the cinematic form of a visual diary, a genre that reflects a current trend.”
“A videocast about Palestinians forced to flee fighting in a Lebanese refugee camp, produced by Knight International Journalism trainees, was featured July 26 on The New York Times’ Web site.
The report by Farah Fayed, a Lebanese journalist, and David Munir Nabti, a Lebanese-American graduate student at the American University of Beirut - with assistance from Knight International Journalism Fellow Craig Duff - was prominently displayed on the prestigious daily’s homepage.”
