Radio Live

Special Lebanon

Amélie Bonin, Aurélie Charon, Caroline Gillet

Presented by La Comédie in partnership with Nova Villa

Discover or rediscover Radio Live, which this season, continues to paint the portrait of a politically-engaged youth. Following their documentary series conducted around the world for France Inter and France Culture, Aurélie Charon and Caroline Gillet met young Lebanese in Beirut and discussed issues of political commitment, identity and resistance. The October 2019 revolution, the economic crisis, the Covid pandemic and the explosion in the port of Beirut have made the daily life of the population extremely difficult. The team met with those who participated in the revolution and together with them, imagined an unprecedented version of Radio Live. A revolutionary Christian, a Palestinian Muslim refugee, a queer Shiite Muslim and a young Sunni hoping to get into politics, are the candidates who share their stories and hopes on stage.
