Contemporary Arab and Lebanese Cinema
Programmed to accompany the exhibition Subversion, this season of contemporary cinema from Lebanon highlights some of the most critically acclaimed films to come out of the Arab world.
Produced by a generation of filmmakers whose memories of Lebanon’s bloody civil war remain omnipresent, these recent examples illustrate one of the Arab world’s most emblematic nations, from a transitional stage of post-traumatic crisis through to post-revolutionary catharsis.
