Skiing With Hezbollah: these days...

As Lebanon's Shia gathered to celebrate Ashura, the country entered a period of relative calm since the violence of last Thursday. At least Nasrallah, during his fiery speech, said he refused to be drawn into a civil war: maybe lessons have been learned from Lebanon's bloody past.

Under the circumstances, the government's offer of reviving its tourist industry seems more and more absurd, which means Ambiel's film becomes more and more interesting (and hopefully more relevent)...

We're both keeping a close eye on the daily news, and reports from our friends on the ground in Beirut. As of now, the production is still on, and I should be arriving in Beirut on February 5th.
