Upheaval: Views of the Arab World

December 4–5, 2015

The civil strife and upheaval of today’s Arab world are depicted in these outstanding recent films from Tunisia and Egypt. These dramatic and documentary features highlight the intense and profound cultural reality and visceral artistic representations of a people defined by geography, language and culture. The works express contemporary debates on identity, political injustice, economic inequality, and debates on traditions and social norms.
