Alam, The Flag علم

Saturday, May 25, 7-9:30 pm. Registration required, $15
This is a fundraiser for humanitarian aid to Gaza presented in partnership with the Arab Film Festival. A skillful examination of the fraught political awakening young Palestinians are forced to undergo, the film Alam is a striking debut feature film from Firas Khoury that marries conversations around nationalism and iconography with the universal themes of growing up. Following the screening there will be a discussion of the film and the current situation in Palestine.
