Maher ABI-SAMRA returns to the quarter of Ramel el Ali, in Beirut’s southern suburb, where he grew up. Settled in the 50s by a mostly Shiite community which came from the villages of southern Lebanon and the Beka Valley, this quarter grew on the rubble of
the civil war. By the early 80s, it had become one of the strongholds of the Hizbollah. Two portraits of women, Zeinab and Khadije, activists in the Hizbollah, examine the personal, social and political factors of their commitment.
