Watch "One-Zero"­ - An Egyptian Movie

CUNY PSC (Professional Staff Congress) is presenting One Zero (2009) as part of its film festival on Islamaphobia. The event is open to the public and a $2 donation is requested. If there's interest, we can arrange a dinner or drinks either before or after the movie (please give your input in the Comments section).

A brief synopsis of One-Zero:
Set in Cairo on the eve of an important soccer match, One-Zero interweaves stories of Cairo inhabitants from various walks of life, including a Coptic woman seeking a divorce, a valet who lives in a working-class neighborhood where he deals hashish, a beautician, an emerging pop star, a hairstylist, and an alcoholic talk show host. The film explores a mosaic of morals and conventions across class, gender, and religious conventions in contemporary Egyptian culture. The narrative of One-Zero presents a vision that attempts to assert itself on an equal footing with, even counter to the predominantly patriarchal and nationalist narrative that aspires to bring the nation together.

    Hey Ari, is this at 6pm or 7pm? It says 7pm here, but the linked poster says 6pm.

    For those who are coming, it's a large room on the 16th floor, but not too large that one can't find people. And for those who can't, no worries - it was a late suggestion. See you guys at the next one! :)
