Middle East Studies is happy to invite you to a screening of the film Bab’Aziz tomorrow – Tuesday, March 22 at 6:00 pm in Humanities Room 1131, as part of our Spring Film Series.

Bab’Aziz is a joint production between Iran and Tunisia.  The film’s complex and nonlinear narrative chiefly centers around the journey of a blind dervish, Bab’Aziz (Parviz Shahinkhou), and his granddaughter, Ishtar (Maryam Hamid), who – while traveling across the desert towards an immense Sufi gathering – encounter several strangers who relate the stories of their own mysterious and spiritual quests.

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