Contemporary Arab Cinema 2017
Sep. 22–28, 2017
This last year has been a whiplash of unexpected events: Brexit, a Trump presidency—culture clashes everywhere we turn. The clashes between Muslims and Christians, Lebanese Christians and Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese, religious extremists and moderates, traditionalists and urbanists all come to a head as the leading theme of the sixth annual edition of Contemporary Arab Cinema.
Get ready for a week of fascinating, provocative movies, engaging conversation, and the opportunity to reconnect with old friends.
—Lina Matta, curator
