This program brings together three short films in which irony, humour and poetic symbolism are suggested by sound design and music. Through this particular treatment, the meaning of the images changes and different connotations are shaped.

He is widely considered as one of the initiators and key players of the Lebanese free improvisation and experimental music scene. He is co-founder of Irtijal, an annual improvisation music festival and of Al Maslakh, the first label for experimental music in the region.
