Lebanon, famous for its Civil War era and location in the restive Middle East, is victim to many first-time visitors' negative preconceptions, from foreigners and members of the diaspora alike.Born in Australia, Moubarak describes a childhood visit to Lebanon as the inspiration for his upcoming documentary on the "grassroots" of Lebanese food, as well its cultural and artistic scenes.For Moubarak, the journey was an exciting discovery of Lebanon's artistic scene.Documenting and embracing these traditional methods was also something that Moubarak found important.This desire to preserve and celebrate fits in with the image of Lebanon that Moubarak hopes to show back home in Australia.Williamson hopes the documentary will reflect the real Lebanon, helping to demystify the country and share positive perspectives of it with Australians.The as-of-yet unnamed documentary is due to be shown on Australian TV, but after seeing the positive reaction to it from the Lebanese he met, Moubarak hopes to release it here as well.
