Event Details

The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies presents

Egyptian Contemporary Film Series 

At Night, They Dance

Directed by Isabelle Lavigne and Stephane Thibault, At Night, They Dance is the story of one family in which the art of belly dancing has been passed down from mother to daughter since time immemorial. The matriarch, Reda, holds the family and its business together – sometimes with a light touch, but mostly with an iron fist. Filmed in Cairo, At Night, They Dance takes an unsentimental yet lyrical look at a hidden world full of surprise and fascination. The viewer is allowed in as a privileged witness.

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.
