One year has passed since the devastating explosion in Beirut on August 4th, 2020 that left over 200 people dead and thousands more injured. The tragedy has left a deep mark in the hearts of the Lebanese people, who are still searching for answers and justice.

The government of Lebanon had promised an urgent investigation into the cause behind the blast, but its official version of events has not been accepted by all. According to official reports, an accident involving a damaged ship off the coast of Lebanon brought ammonium nitrate to the port, and this caused an explosion when it came into contact with a warehouse.

The ensuing damage was devastating; buildings were destroyed and homes reduced to rubble, leaving families homeless and business owners without livelihoods. Despite this however, victims’ families have continued to call for transparency regarding what happened – demanding full disclosure from authorities about what took place on that fateful day, as well as accountability for those responsible.

In commemoration of last year’s tragedy, the documentary film ‘Beirut: One Year On’ offers an intimate look at how those affected by the explosion are still struggling to piece their lives back together amidst ongoing political turmoil. Through interviews with survivors and everyday citizens caught up in the disaster’s wake, this powerful film paints a deeply personal portrait of life one year after Beirut’s explosion – exploring themes such as resilience in times of crisis and hope for a better future.

We urge you to take some time out of your day to watch this important documentary – giving voice to those whose stories have too often been ignored or forgotten. As we come together to remember all those affected by this tragic event, let us also use our awareness raising efforts help build closer understanding between nations, communities – and ultimately – ourselves.
