Name: The Annual Arab Film Festival
Date: April 14, 2019
Time: 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
Event Description:
In collaboration with the Arab American National Museum and the Flint Institute of Arts, the AAHC will be hosting the annual Film Festival featuring two short films and a discussion followed by a featured film.

The following films will be shown: 

The Insult (Feature) : "In today's Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds Tony (Adel Karam), a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser (Kamel El Basha), a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another."

Searching Skies (Short) : "When a Syrian refugee family is invited to a Christian family's house for Christmas dinner, they are caught between opposing viewpoints for and against their presence -- until an unexpected event suddenly occurs."

Rupture (Short) : "Rupture follows the journey of four Arab teens on their quest to find the local public pool in their new Canadian city. Introducing a cast of first time actors and survivors of war who channel their personal experiences of loss and new beginnings through a fictional narrative."
