Your Call 101807 The Arab Film Festival

What will be showcased at the upcoming 11th Annual Arab Film Festival? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with the festival’s filmmakers. From the first Lebanese vampire thriller to documentaries about finding peace through dance and skateboarding, we’ll hear about the Arab world through its films. How do these movies manage to bridge a gap between cultures? What challenges do these filmmakers face in the Arab world? And how are they being received here in the U.S.? It’s Your Call, with Sandip Roy and you.
Sonia El Feki, artistic director for the Arab Film Festival
Muayad Mousa Alayan, director of Qater Al Nada
Nadia Kamel, director of Salata Baladi
Line Halvorsen, director of USA vs. Al-Arian
