Middle East Film Series: Ajami

Middle East Studies is happy to invite you to a screening of the film Ajami on Tuesday, March 1 at 6:00 pm in Humanities Room 1131, as part of our Spring Film Series.

Ajami is a powerful crime drama set on the streets of Jaffa’s Ajami neighborhood – a melting pot of cultures and conflicting views among Jews, Muslims, and Christians – and told through the eyes of a cross-section of the city’s inhabitants.  As their stories intersect we witness a dramatic collision of different worlds and the tragic consequences of enemies living as neighbors.

Ajami was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film and won several awards at Middle Eastern film festivals.  For more information visit: http://www.kino.com/ajami/

We hope to see you there!  Admission is free and open to all.
