Event Details

CCAS is proud to present

Egyptian Contemporary Film Series


 Tuesday, February 18, 2014

5:30 - 7:30 p.m. 

ICC Building, Room 103 

Please note the time and location for this screening. 

Written and directed by Amr Salama and based on a true story, Asmaa tells the story of a woman living with HIV in Egypt and her struggle to live under the burden of keeping her status secret. A taboo topic in Egypt, Asmaa faces a dilemma when offered the opportunity to appear on a television talk show. Asmaa premiered at the 2011 Abu Dhabi Film Festival and has won several awards.  


The "Egyptian Contemporary Film Series" is a weekly film series taking place during the Spring 2014 semester at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS). The series will showcase some of the landmark and controversial productions from Egypt since 2000. During this period, Egyptian cinema, the most established and productive film industry in the Arab world, underwent a significant transformation due to factors including privatization, the rise of a new generation of filmmakers, and a burgeoning independent film collective, all of which contributed to an increasingly dynamic cinema. 

Each film will be followed by a brief discussion moderated by Dr. Adel Iskandar.
