As if we were living (Ka'an Aayshin): the soundtrack of the Lebanese October Revolution

Michelle & Noel Keserwany ميشال ونويل كسرواني


This music video is a collaborative project that started before the 17th of October 2019. As much as the establishment tries to blame the Revolution for the current situation, the truth remains that the rampant corruption and successive failures of this system were the main catalysts that brought forth the downfall, and consequently lead to the revolution, not the other way around. This revolution is a peaceful one and it's inviting people to fight corruption and stand for their basic human rights, and for living with dignity in our beloved country Lebanon. We collaborated with our courageous friends working in music production and filmmaking, and sent them the video back and forth; they changed it, added what they felt like adding, and came up with the most insightful suggestions. This music video was born out of that spirit.

On October 17th WE LIT LIKE FIRE and we will no longer accept to live silenced and defeated in misery. Indeed, we now see politicians shifting their corrupt tactics, making it seem as if they are fulfilling our demands… We are extremely aware and wide awake, and we will adjust the course of our revolution to fit any deceitful manoeuvring. We will not go back to living #ka2an_3ayshin (As if we were living)
