This ongoing research project creates casting videos of people on the streets of different Arab cities confronting them with the opportunity to become heroes in a serial novel. The conversations are meant to populate a subjective archive of those streets, and also shift the narrative from its victim-centric version to an aspirational, witty and shared status quo.
