Please join the Asian Arts & Culture Program and the UMass Dept of Communication to view a special screening of the documentary "Reel Bad Arabs" on Wednesday, December 6, 7:30 PM in Room 137 Isenberg School of Management. This film was produced with the support of the Media Education Foundation under the direction of UMass Professor Sut Jhally. The 50 minute film is based on Arab American film authority Jack Shaheen's ground breaking book of the same name. Filled with numerous clips and commentary from films of past decades to the present, this documentary examines how the Arab people have been portrayed in the visual media. Professor Jhally will be present to introduce the film and conduct a question and answer period after the screening.The film was chosen to be screened the following week at the Dubai Film Festival.
Please note: This event replaces the Arab Cinema Panorama's scheduled screening of Ali Zaoua: Prince of the Streets by Nabil Ayouch.
