Title: Miraculous beginnings & No, illness is neither here nor there
Attributed date: 1993
Attributed to: Dr. Fadl Fakhouri
This document is attributed to Dr. Fadl Fakhouri, one of Lebanon's leading historians. The historian donated 226 notebooks, 2 shorts films, and 24 black and white photographs to The Atlas Group in the early 1990s.
Dr Fakhouri carried with him wherever he went two Super 8 mm film cameras. On one camera, he exposed a frame of film every time he thought the Lebanese wars ended. On the other, he exposed a frame of film every time he came across the sign for a doctor’s or dentist’s office. He titled the two films Miraculous beginnings and No, illness is neither here nor there.
