Another Night in Beirut (excerpt), Video, Beirut, Lebanon, 2019, produced by Letitia Gallery.

Another Night in Beirut was filmed 14 years after Fattouh’s video A Night in Beirut where she follows el Tabbal[1]during Ramadan in her childhood neighborhood in Beirut. This time Fattouh filmed the same Tabbal on the trunk of a motorcycle. She no longer wants to put a face on that once terrifying voice, but instead now she reveals how the old and tired Tabbal is nearing the end of his journey.

[1] El Tabbal is the one who passes in the city streets with a drum to invite the inhabitants to wake-up have breakfast and pray to prepare for a new day of fasting.
