The primary objective behind metascreening is to let the message reach across the globe as metaverse is a widely accepted platform lately. While offering insight into the documentary, the filmmaker revealed his desire to keep the incident alive in people’s minds.

According to Umair Masoom, the premiere of “Beirut after the blast” is indicative that web3 platforms serve as an ideal space to share powerful stories like Beirut to the world.
The movie unifies a unique story line and intention to offer a new lease of life to the Lebanese who are still searching for hope and prosperity in their life.
