Their latest project, The Lebanese Rocket Society, includes a documentary and art installations. Their work can be found in major private and public collections and has been shown in museums, biennales and art centres around the world. Joana cofounded Abbout Productions with Khalil Joreige and Georges Schoucair. She is also executive board member of Metropolis Art Cinema in Beirut.
