Carine Doumit is an independent film editor and writer based in Beirut. Her work comprises a variety of feature documentaries, film essays, videos, and experimental fictions. She is a writing and editing consultant for workshops and university programs as well as independent filmmakers and artists.
In both Arabic and French, she writes hybrid texts published in cultural forums, exhibitions, and online platforms. She is part of the Camelia Committee, a collective that explores multiple forms of writing and collaborations.
Carine came to MacDowell from Beirut with a pack of notebooks containing diaries, notes, and sketches for a graphic novel entitled The Book of Children. The project is a continuation of her work as a film editor and writer on various cinematic and literary apparatuses, which generate and amplify polyphony. The Book of Children is now in the early stages of writing.
