Rock the Casbah (2013)
ANA: Contemporary Arab Cinema
OPENING NIGHT! With a powerhouse cast, including a cameo by Omar Sharif, Rock the Casbah is an engaging, bittersweet comedy about a family—mostly women—gathered in the patriarch’s villa to mourn his death. Sparks fly as they come to terms with the past and the challenges facing upper-class women torn between Muslim traditions and Western influences today.
