“The guys and I decided to volunteer to do this in order to shed the light on Sidon and its heritage and the beautiful things and events that used to happen here between neighbors. Our generation doesn’t know this and we ask older people about what happened back in the days, we are portraying these things in order to film a small series about Sidon.”
