Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Why Rasheed The Film?

I'm here to tell the story of my uncle Rasheed Broum, who was killed in an airstrike during the Israeli invasion of south Lebanon in 1982. I never knew my uncle. Very little was mentioned of him during my childhood. I have many questions about him, his life and his death, so I have set out on a journey to find everthing I can about him and the people whose lives he touched during his inspiring short life. 



Rasheed The Film captures one of many war stories from Saida, Lebanon. Through Rasheed's story, the documentary will take the viewer back in time to the sixties and seventies. During that time, Lebanon was heavily influenced by the rise of Arab nationalism and later torn by a vicious civil war. In 1982, many families lost loved ones, just like my family lost Rasheed. This film will bring light to their stories.

How can you help? 

I need to raise $12,000 to fund the film production. That includes filming, editing, purchase of achrival footage and travel expenses to conduct interviews. The Zoomaal campaign is only successful if the financial goal is met. So help us reach our goal, no matter how small your contribution is! Rasheed’s story has waited more than 30 years to be told. With your help, it can finally see the light.

Help me spread the word!
