Event Description

September 18:  Reel Bad Arabs, An Evening with Dr. Jack G. Shaheen

Dr. Jack G. Shaheen is the leading media critic and chronicler of American popular representation of the Middle East.  He will be speaking in Giffels Auditorium (UA Campus) on Thursday, September 19.  Join us for a special Nadi Cinema screening and discussion of his documentary, Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People (2007). 

English w/often outrageous accents – 60 minutes.

Nadi Cinema, the Middle East Film Club, screens films from across the Middle East and often beyond. All films – classics, cult favorites, recent hits, comedies, tragedies, political thrillers, social commentaries, and romances, in black-white and living color – are subtitled in English. Screenings are free and open to the public. The series is hosted by Professor Joel Gordon and generally meets bi-weekly. Come see movies the way they were filmed to be screened – in a dark theater with friends and strangers.

All screenings take place in Mullins Library Room 104 and begin at 7:00 pm.
