Arabic Movie

Loading
So many Israelis still wax nostalgic about that old Friday afternoon ritual, back in the times when television had just one channel. Everyone would watch the Arab movie of the week, but did anybody ever wonder how Israel's official TV station was able to transcend hostile boundaries to obtain these films, and why it insisted on showing movies made by "the enemy"? The Arabic-language movie from Egypt let some of us escape back to our original homeland, and let others peek out from our "villa in the jungle" and catch a glimpse of our neighbors across the border. But most of us didn't really want to see the people whose culture, anguish, and aspirations were reflected on our screens. "Arab Movie" brings us the stars and the songs, the convoluted plots, and that fleeting moment when we s [...]

Selfie

Loading
Bosco (Santiago Alveru) has the typical life of a wealthy Madrid family offspring, living in a huge house in the outskirts, going out with flighty, attractive Paula (Clara Alvarado) and studying for the requisite MBA. But early on, his politico father is arrested and jailed on multiple corruption charges (something that's been happening a lot recently in real-world Spain) and suddenly his world falls apart. The family's possessions are seized; Paula will soon leave Bosco; and he's asked to drop his course of study. In other words, when the money goes down, everything else goes down with it — except, inevitably and comically, Bosco's sense of social superiority.

The Last Laugh

Loading
A feature documentary that proceeds from the premise that the Holocaust would seem to be an absolutely off-limits topic for comedy. But is it? History shows that even the victims of the Nazi concentration camps themselves used humor as a means of survival and resistance. Still, any use of comedy in connection with this horror risks diminishing the suffering of millions. So where is the line? If we make the Holocaust off limits, what are the implications for other controversial subjects--9/11, AIDS, racism--in a society that prizes freedom of speech? Shot on Super 16mm, "The Last Laugh" thoughtfully weaves together an intimate cinema verité portrait of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone alongside interviews with influential comedians and thinkers ranging from Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverm [...]

Breaking Silence: Starting the Conversation About Sexual Assault in the Muslim Community

Loading
Three Muslim women share their stories of sexual assault--and, in a deeply personal way, they challenge the stigma that has long suppressed the voice of survivors. Throughout America, many Muslim communities persist in stigmatizing all discussion of sex-related subjects. Even though sexual assault and abuse are widespread, conversations about it are rare--and the pressure for victims and their families to "keep it a secret" helps perpetuate abuse. Breaking silence takes a radical and humanizing approach to the emotional scars of sexual assault, giving women the space to share their voices without shame. Deepened by the perspectives of Imam Khalid Latif of The Islamic Center at NYU, the film challenges stereotypes and cultural beliefs held by both Muslims and the non-Muslim public.--P [...]
