The history of Lebanon via pop culture - Dani Boustros

I shall not go over the life and sadly early death of Dani Boustros, the aim of this history project was never about chronology. One of the highlights of my career as a joursnalist was interviewing her in 1995. I still think of those moments, and if I am to describe her in retrospect, "magnetic" comes to mind. A fierce personality yet without the rage, a cultured educated character but with the playfulness rather than pumpousness, and a million stories to tell, for a million experiences have been lived!
