The Narrow Streets of Bourj Hammoud is a 72-minute experimental non-fiction film about a working-class suburb of Beirut, Lebanon. The neighborhood was initially built to permanently settle Armenian refugees who escaped the 1915 genocide in the Ottoman Empire. Today, it is a diverse district that is also home to non-Armenian Lebanese communities as well as migrants and refugees from Syria and the region.
