FIlm: Forget Baghdad

A filmic reflection about the stereotypes of "Jew" and "Arab" through 100 years of film contrasted with the history of Jewish communists from Iraq. The protagonists are Shimon Ballas, a writer and professor of Arabic Studies in Tel Aviv and Paris; best-selling Israeli author Sami Michael from Haifa; Moshe Houri, a former dealer in real estate; writer Samir Naqqash, who publishes only in the Arabic language; and Ella Shohat, a professor of film and cultural studies in New York, who has written a standard text on the Israeli film industry. 

Pizza will be served at 7:30 p.m., immediately before the movie. This event is free and open to the public.

Funded by the Ring Family Fund and sponsored by Oberlin Hillel.
