Streaming giant Netflix has released a collection of 34 Lebanese films titled Made in Lebanon. The catalog features critically-acclaimed and award-winning films from various genres like romance, drama, and comedy, showcasing the best of Lebanese cinema. The collection is Netflix’s way of paying tribute to Lebanon‘s filmmakers, storytellers, and other creatives who have contributed to Middle Eastern cinema and are going through a difficult time due to the country’s financial crisis and Covid-19.

“I am especially happy to see Caramel on Netflix, particularly because it was shot on the streets of Beirut and the Gemmayzeh neighborhood, the heart of the city that was unfortunately decimated,” said the film’s director Nadine Labaki in a statement. “In a sense this is my personal memory of the beautiful streets, the old homes and shops, and buildings, of all these places that may never be the same again.”

Nuha El Tayeb, Netflix’s director of content acquisitions for Mena and Turkey said, “Creating this collection allows us to share more stories from the world, with the world, and expose people to content they may not otherwise have a chance to see. The catalog represents stories from filmmakers from different walks of life, covering a slice of everything that Lebanon represents – love, humor, and beauty.”
