The Intuitive Film Lab

Nestled amidst the vibrant heart of Beirut, high above the bustling streets, a captivating haven awaits—The Intuitive Film Lab. On the rooftop, as the sun’s golden hues melt into twilight, a unique group of artists gathers, embarking on a collective journey into the realm of art in which they explore profound connections between their inner worlds and the visual medium.

At the core of this transformative experience lies a simple yet potent recipe—intuition and love. The driving force behind this endeavor is none other than Muriel, the conductor & guiding light of the Film Lab. Muriel’s belief in the power of intuition infuses the creative process, dares the participants to push their limits and tap into the unknown. The process is fluid, and the outcomes unpredictable—truly, a testament to the raw power of intuition

It all begins with nine artists dedicating their weekends over two months. The initial phase focuses solely on capturing visuals without any accompanying audio. Then, they transition to recording and collecting soundscapes, which predominantly convey their emotions.

When it comes to editing, the visuals and audio are meticulously edited separately, avoiding any direct correlation between them. The raw footage transform into a reflection of the artists’ inner selves, and through the interplay of visuals and sounds, a tapestry of experiences comes to life.

At this time, the artists give birth to their films, and the rest is a collaborative effort with talented individuals. Through this process, the artists not only get the opportunity to learn, create, and establish valuable networks but also have the privilege of showcasing their creations through screenings, further enriching their artistic journey.

Beyond the realm of artistic creation, the intuitive film lab forges connections that transcend the screen. With each frame captured, and each story unveiled, participants uplift and empower one another. The rooftop becomes a sanctuary where growth is nurtured, and barriers are shattered.

The Intuitive Film Lab’s impact is best seen through the stories of its participants. Two members of the Media Booth’s team, Adeeb Farhat and Leen Aoun, embarked on this journey in different years, each contributing an episode that resonated with their personal narratives. Adeeb’s creation of an episode from “Ana’s” series and Leen’s evocative episode,  “Fear 4”, stand as testaments to the lab’s power to unveil profound layers of human emotion.

In a remarkable twist of fate, Adeeb Farhat’s journey came full circle, as he assumed the role of Post Production Supervisor in 2023—a role that exemplifies the growth and transformation the lab facilitates.

If this resonates with you, if you’re ready to find your inner artist, be part of this transformative journey. Bring your intuition and dive into a world of self-discovery through art. It’s where the extraordinary in us shines. As participants, this is our testament. Your creative awakening starts here.
