This project has not been successfully funded. Sorry!

Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

If it did not happen on television, it did not happen at all… and if it is not in English, it’s “what the hell are you talking about!”


THE PROJECT
Lebanon On Screen: The Greatest Moments of Lebanese Television and Pop Culture” is the first book of its kind written in English, documenting the landmark moments and milestones of Lebanese television. From the country’s first television broadcast in 1959 to the birth of the first Audio Visual Media Law in Lebanon and the Middle East in 1994, this book will tell you the tale of Lebanon the war zone, and Lebanon the dreamland, as well as Lebanon the small country that played a leading cultural role in shaping the larger Arab World.

This book captures three and a half decades of Lebanese entertainment, pop culture and history, as portrayed by the small screen. It showcases Lebanese television’s most famous and infamous moments, its unforgettable firsts, glamorous golden age icons and legends, and its most memorable heroes and villains, who not only shaped Lebanon as a nation and a state, but also pushed its cultural and social boundaries.

Inspired by an Arabic book published by television talk show producer and host, best-selling author Zaven Kouyoumdjian in 2015, this book aims to bring Lebanese television and pop culture to the world. After all, isn’t pop culture what really changes the world, and unites us all?



THE FUNDING
Part of the funding has already been secured. I thought of getting YOUR help for the rest, and giving you the opportunity to be part of this influential project!

The money collected through Zoomaal will help cover translation expenses, as well as some printing expenses. Once the first milestone is reached, the second milestone will help us take 50 copies of this book to 50 academic and public libraries around the world.

With your contribution, not only you will be getting yourself a perk of your choice, including opportunities to meet iconic Lebanese celebrities, but you will also be the reason behind spreading the Lebanese culture across the continents!
