ARCATA– Film Screening: SCHEHERAZADE, TELL ME A STORY
January 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
ARCATA– As part of the Let’s Talk About the Middle East film and discussion series, Humboldt State University History professor Dr. Leena Dallasheh hosts a screening of “Scheherazade, Tell Me a Story.”
This film highlights the intersections of corruption, misogyny, and gender and political oppression in Egypt in the twilight of Mubarak’s dictatorship. It follows the story of Hebba, the host of an evening political talk show, and her husband, Karim, the deputy director of a government-controlled newspaper, who attempts to manipulate his wife’s career to secure promotion. His success, however, leads to an even bigger indictment of the government he seeks to appease.
Free and open to all ages.
The screening and discussion will take place at Richard’s Goat Miniplex
401 I Street, Arcata, CA 95521
This program is part of a series entitled Let’s Talk About the Middle East which is supported by California Humanities through a Humanities for All Quick Grant.
