“Zyara” presents an innovative and deeply personal approach to storytelling. These exceptionally moving web documentaries unlock the testimonies of individuals who have experienced and overcome a wide range of social challenges through courage, perseverance and resilience. They have a unique role to play in promoting social cohesion, underlining the qualities which people have in common rather than those which set them apart.

Created and produced by a team of Lebanese filmmakers, “Zyara” has won nearly 36 accolades from festivals worldwide and enjoys a fast-growing following online. There is significant potential for exporting this model across the Middle East and for developing a centralised hub which can act as a conduit for shared experiences and constructive debate. Public discussion at local screenings is also a key element of the “Zyara” concept and one which gives both civil society and community leaders a chance to explore ways of supporting the victims of social injustice.
