On the surface, Lebanon is a vibrant city driven by consumerism and an eagerness for modern life. Beneath this façade however is a subterranean landscape of remains from the county’s macabre history, hidden from the population above. “Panoptic” explores this underground level to reveal how, although invisible, it is nonetheless present within the soul of the Lebanese people.
