Anxious in Beirut

Dir. Zakaria Jaber, 2023

93’, Lebanon


In Arabic with English subtitles

In the ever-present desire to capture, record, and understand Beirut, and by extension himself, Zakaria has been trying to tell a coherent story of his city.

Anxious in Beirut is a personal diary that documents the events of the last few years in Lebanon (revolution, post-war, explosions, demonstrations…). Living with constant anxiety, the young director narrates his own life, while trying to leave his country on numerous occasions.


Zakaria Jaber (b. 1994, Lebanon) is a film director based in Beirut. He is a self-taught photographer and videographer with a commitment to storytelling, editing, and writing. After years of working in TV production and reporting with various news outlets, he managed to independently produce and direct his short film in 2018.
