At #NZWF17 Zyara won the awards for
Best Director (International Documentary) and
Best Show (International Documentary).

Zyara paints cinematic poetic portraits of people, engraving a part of their soul, some of their stories, and most of all their emotions, in five minutes. The show is created in Lebanon with the hope to create a ripple of love in the world.

In its second season Zyara chooses to highlight Lebanese people with physical challenges. People who succeeded in transcending their disability and kept going for the love of life.

Zyara has won awards at more than 15 festivals.
