We hold a monthly film screening program in collaboration with MIT Aga Khan Documentation Center. We screen films that discuss Arab American issues and issues related to the Arab World. Guided discussion follows each film.
It's no secret that Arab culture is rich in the arts. Egyptian Cinema - considered the Hollywood of the Arab world - has dominated the industry since the 1930's, producing over 4,000 films. Today film festivals feature artists from Algeria, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia.
Previously we have spotlighted:
- Egyptian Director Youssef Chahine
- Fairouz and the Rahbani Brothers
Have a favorite Arab actor or director you'd like us to feature? Let us know!
