Arab & Muslim Youth Identity-Film Shorts SCREENING

  • Dec 7, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Join us as we screen several short narrative films that --through compelling fictional storytelling-- deal with certain challenges and choices facing Arab/Muslim/Iranian young people in the West. 

Selections include: ‘TRYOUTS’ featuring a teen that covers must choose between cheerleading and her hijab; in ‘REFUGE’ an Iranian college student who wants to stay in the U.S. is faced with an impossible choice; in ‘THE STICKS’ a family parable takes a funny turn; in ‘KEMO SABE’ a child on a playground wants to be the cowboy; and in ‘HABIBTI’ an Arab mother visits her daughter and boyfriend in the U.K.

Admission is $5 and pizza will be served.

Subject matter is suitable for teens and adults.

This event is co-sponsored by the Arab Film Festival and the Arab Cultural & Community Center, and funded in part by San Francisco Foundation.


Lots of events happening today. Plan well ;)
