Beirut/NTSC on 10 years after 9-11

11-9-11 from Tarek Chemaly on Vimeo.

Dear friends, welcome to the launching of the new epic video from Beirut/NTSC. To commemorate 10 years of 9/11 Beirut/NTSC has made a video from 2011 hand-animated frames which talks about the world in the aftermath of that day. Of course, the world is ablaze with commemorations and special issues and events about the topic, but how many of them stem from one of the regions that got so much affected by the event? How many tell the other side of the story?... The Voice Over is a collection of 7 poems which were included in my book "The wit and wisdom of Arty Stotle" (which were Arabized and recited, and then re-transposed and along with the English put as subtitles) and you'll be surprised that many of these poems were written prior to the event. Do feel free to forward this, link it, facebook it, tweet it, or "Refudiate" it (yes, that verb coined by Sarah Palin is in the video!)... All feeback, constructive or not, is welcome and all leakage to mainstream media appreciated.
