The Program in Near Eastern Studies is sponsoring a series of films by Arab and Palestinian filmmakers. The last two films will be shown this month.
On Tuesday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m. in Frist 307, the series features Wedding in Galilee, a richly detailed allegory of marriage, tradition, and national identity by Palestinian director Michel Khleifi. The film is 113 minutes long, in Arabic with English subtitles.
The second film, on Monday, Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. in 113 Jones Hall, is A Day For You, A Day Against. "This documentary film, based on three years of research, explores the historical complexity of the war of 1948 and its impact upon the Arab inhabitants of Palestine, and provides insight into the diversity of Palestinian refugee experiences since then." It is 45 minutes.
