From one of Egypt's most controversial and taboo-breaking filmmakers comes a drama of betrayal, passion and political upheaval. Set against the Egyptian revolution as a back drop, the story is built around four people who live on a desert farm. It examines issues of love, revenge, passion and the misuse of power that illustrates the larger conflicts in the country…

The film caused a firestorm of media debate over freedom of expression in its home country. Ironically, even under the newer government, the film was censored and subjected to numerous edits before Egyptians could view it. It's a scathing critique of the establishment, building to an unflinching ending that questions where the revolution is headed and what it has accomplished.

Directed by Khaled el Hagar, Egypt, 2016, 125 min, Drama, Arabic with English subtitles

Flamenco is synonymous with Spanish culture. Since its inception, theorists have sidelined the fundamental contribution of Afro-Andalusians. Commercial exploitation of the American colonies brought hundreds of Africans to Spain to be sold as slaves, forming a population who over time managed to gain space in a society wrought with racial prejudices. Music and dance were a fundamental part of their expression and the most important affirmation of their identity. As the black population began to disappear from Spain in the late 19th century, so too did their contribution to this extraordinary art form. In Gurumbé, their story is finally told. Directed by M. Angel Rosale, Spain/Mexico/Portugal/Senegal, 2016, Documentary/History, Music, 72 min, Spanish with English subtitles.
