Cape Cod Festival of Arab & Middle Eastern Cinema

Friday, May 5th, 2017 7:00 pm
Spotlight on Syria: Houses Without Doors by Avo Kaprealian
BUY TICKETS HERE This Syrian documentary portrays the changes in the life of an Armenian family on Aleppo’s frontline in Al Midan, an area that brought shelter to the persecuted Armenians 100 years ago and today to many displaced Syrians. From the balcony of his home, the director films with a small camera the changes in his neighborhood and his own family, interweaving his images with extracts from classical films to illustrate the parallels between the Armenian genocide and Syrians’ reality today.

Regional Premiere: Tickling Giants by Sara Taksler
BUY TICKETS HERE Regional Premiere: Tickling Giants by Sara Taksler In the midst of the Egyptian Arab Spring, Bassem Youssef makes a decision that's every mother's worst nightmare... He leaves his job as a heart surgeon to become a full—time comedian. Dubbed, "The Egyptian Jon Stewart", Bassem creates the satirical show, Al Bernameg. The weekly program quickly becomes the most viewed television program in the Middle East, with 30 million viewers per episode. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart averaged two million viewers. In a country where free speech is not settled law, Bassem's show becomes as controversial as it popular. He and his staff must endure physical threats, protests, and legal action, all because of jokes.
