Can’t wait until the start of Festival Cinéma Arabe?
Join us april 17th at De Balie in Amsterdam for a special sneak preview of Western Arabs with Omar Shargawi.
Western Arabs is a historical and personal story, based on the director’s own experience, family, friends and acquaintances. We follow them and depict different situations throughout their lives – the sad, the vile, the emotional and the comical. A universal story of a family that has arisen from a simultaneously beautiful and tragic cultural encounter; as is the case in hundreds of thousands of families around Europe and the rest of the Western World.
After the film screening programme editor Sherin Seyda will enter into conversation with director Omar Shargawi. The Q&A will be in English.
