2014 Arab Film Festival


The Arab Film Festival is on again this year with films from a region in constant flux.  As the revolutions continue to play out, with no winners in sight, the filmmakers are finding the ways in which to tell these rich stories.  Amongst these political narratives are the personal love stories of women who are pushing the boundaries of their communities and living the lives they want to live. New feature dramas and documentaries capture these dynamic times from Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, Palestine and Jordan to give you a glimpse into these complex but beautiful societies.
