Lebanon’s Water Crisis

This film is our short 16 min documentary which went out last weekend commissioned by BBC World, which explores how the wettest country in the Middle East mismanages its water supplies.

BBC’s Middle East Correspondent Martin Patience reports, asking; “Why can’t you drink the water in the wettest country in the Middle East”?

Lebanon’s geography means it’s blessed with water but in the capital, Beirut, and its surrounding areas more than a million and a half people suffer from serious water shortages. It’s a story of chronic mismanagement in a country that has so many problems… Economically, financially and politically.

This was filmed using the following equipment:
Canon C300 mkii, Canon 5D mkiv, DJI Mavic Pro drone, GoPro 7 and a few shots on my iPhone XR.
