is proud to present:

Egyptian Contemporary Film Series:

Tuesdays, 5-7pm

CCAS Boardroom, ICC 241

The "Egyptian Contemporary Film Series" is a weekly film series taking place during the Spring 2014 semester at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS). The series will showcase some of the landmark and controversial productions from Egypt since 2000. During this period, Egyptian cinema, the most established and productive film industry in the Arab world, underwent a significant transformation due to factors including privatization, the rise of a new generation of filmmakers, and a burgeoning independent film collective, all of which contributed to an increasingly dynamic cinema. 
 

Each film will be followed by a brief discussion moderated by Dr. Adel Iskandar.
