JABALNA (جبلنا) is a documentary love letter to Lebanon through a journey across the country on the Lebanon Mountain Trail (LMT). The film will feature no expository talking heads and instead employ the poetic and pure observational modes. The film will be an audio-visual ethnography, a series of vignettes painting portraits of life on the trail, the fragility of Lebanon’s mountains, and the LMT’s unique ability to connect and reconnect both travelers and locals to Lebanon’s rich history, culture, and stunning geography. Loosely framed around chapters such as culture, village life, environmental preservation, identity, and the trail itself, the film’s mosaic will reveal the LMT not only as a vital environmental artery within Lebanon, but as a cultural touchstone to connect – or reconnect – with Lebanese culture.
