Houroub saghira (after Maroun Baghdadi) حروب صغيرة

And so I found the Playart diecast military vehicles which were mine when I was a kid online (they were a Christmas present from an uncle). I revisited all the wars they were through, personal wars and those endured by Lebanon. Little struggles which may or may not be insignificant. It all reminded me of Maroun Baghdadi's film "Houroub Saghira" (little wars) - it is ironic that Baghdadi survived the war but still died in Lebanon because the elevator came up to his floor in Beirut and as he stepped in the box was not there.
