When her film was due to premiere in Lebanon at the Beirut Cinema Days a month ago, Eid presumed it would go smoothly since she had met with a couple of army generals that had requested to meet with her five months earlier to get screening permission.
After they saw the film, they told her they respected her point of view and would allow the movie to be screened.

They would pass the film, they told her, provided that she removed a line from the voiceover. They may never get to trial. When she refused, she was denied permission to screen her documentary. Like many countries in the Middle East, being critical of the army or even addressing issues surrounding it is a taboo topic.
On 23 March, Eid decided to upload her film on a foreign online server so that the censorship authority would not shut it down, making it available for public viewing for three days.
An essay film with numerous experimental flourishes and no narrative, Panoptic is the rarest of Arab documentaries: Once an undergound parking lot situated under a bridge in Adlieh, in east Beirut, it was converted into a detention centre in The people that Eid filmed in the detention centre were from Ethiopia, the Philippines and Egypt, and they were jailed for different reasons including not having work permits, or domestic help who have run away from their sponsors due to alleged abuse.
An integral part of Eid's quest for closure was to have her film shown in her hometown. But I failed, and by default, I failed to bury my father. Ironically, her father did not nurture the love of the army in her.
I needed to show it in Beirut - to have the people react to it. He, nonetheless, believed that the army could have had a useful function, namely protecting the country from militias.

Most teenagers have no sense of belonging. What are they afraid of exactly? So, do the security forces genuinely want to improve the conditions of the country, or are they protecting those militias? If approved, it is expected to pardon tens of thousands of wanted and convicted Sunni and Shia Lebanese citizens.

Anyvay, zat's how I lost my medical license. It's not technically in the final version of Meet the Medic, but rather in an older version that was abandoned.
Atop a Mountain of Corpses: Early in the video, the Medic scolds Archimedes for playing in the intestines of the Heavy. At the end of the video: Oh man, you would not believe The RED Scout is especially abused this time around. Subverted, it looks like the Scout smashes into the camera itself before it's revealed that he just crashed into the RED base's window. Set up with the Heavy, but the punchline is the Scout.
This series is already all about this trope, but this video plays suffering for comedy moreso than previous ones. The magazine the Pyro is reading in the last scene is the Jarate Comic from the Sniper vs. Along with Sound-Effect Bleep. Justified in that he most likely hasn't given himself a heart implant yet.
On the other side of the battlefield, none of the Soldiers are firing at said vulnerable Medic.
Cutscene Power to the Max: Mostly averted, but the Medic is keeping a severed head alive indefinitely, and a RED Demoman is on the battlefield in a wheelchair. The Medigun also seems to have a low setting, as he's keeping the Heavy alive, conscious, and mostly out of pain without his heart and with his chest cut open, but without healing him.
The Soldiers' rockets also curve in mid-air to hit the Scout during the opening sequence. This actually makes sense when one notes that the Medic is using the Quick-Fix instead of the vanilla Medigun.

It doesn't make the patient invulnerable, but the description of the Quick-Fix notes that this is because the invulnerability function of the Quick-Fix shorted out after that first test, forcing the Medic to focus on one benefit or the other.
The first part of the soundtrack, which plays when the RED Scout is fleeing from a barrage of rockets, is a slowed down version of "Faster than a Speeding Bullet". Apparentlythe disembodied Spy head is a remnant from an earlier version of the short. While the Medic's anecdote about losing his medical license see below is a little bit disturbing, it's still kind of jarring to hear him and Heavy laughing and chatting casually while a battle rages outside and the Medic is currently performing surgery on the Heavy while the latter is awake.
The Medic has a fair flock of doves, apparently as pets. When he leaves his operating room and takes the field with the Heavy, a bunch of them fly out of the garage to mark his entrance. They also fly by when he and the Heavy are standing atop a pile of Soldiers. Hoo boy, the Medic. He's enjoying himself when he really shouldn't be. Right before the title card the BLU rockets appear to send the Scout smashing into the camera only for it to turn out to just be a window.
It's hard to tell what map this takes place in, but according to Valve, it's a modified version of Badwater Basin. It takes a bit of time to see that the entire contents of the refrigerator are a Sandvich, three hearts "Mega Baboon", "Loch Ness Hamster", and one label too small to readthree bottles of Red Shed beer, the BLU Spy's head, a battery for the head, and an ashtray.
From the placement of the Spy's head, it's implied that Meet the Sandvich was done in the same fridge from his point of view, but the Sandvich is on the wrong shelf. Miss Pauling is watching the med-bay through an observation window. She has a clipboard in one hand. The Pyro is reading a magazine with "The Insult That Made a 'Jarate Master' Out of Sniper" on the back cover while playing with a lighter, the Sniper is sleeping, the Demoman is drinking, the Spy is looking at his ticket, the Engineer is playing the song that accompanied the Medic during the surgery scene on his guitar, and the Soldier is standing at attention, eschewing the chairs.
During the start of the last battle scene, you can also see the Pyro near the cliff, running away from the mass of Soldiers in the funny 'humiliation' run cycle. Check out the background at the start of the surgery scene. The x-rays in the light box show the Heavy has had a bomb lodged inside him.
