Event Details

Midwest Premiere!

Can music transcend religion and politics? Meet Majid Shokor, an Iraqi-Australian from a Muslim background who discovers a hidden history — the Jewish role in Iraqi music. Shokor journeys from Australia to Israel, Europe, and Iraq, to meet exiled Iraqi musicians and unite them in a concert at London’s Barbican Centre. Directed by Marsha Emerman.

Northwestern University Assistant Professor of Performance Studies Dr. Shayna Silverstein will lead the Q&A.

Dr. Shayna Silverstein is an assistant professor of Performance Studies at Northwestern University. Her research examines politics, culture, and performance in the contemporary Middle East. Previously a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Penn Humanities Forum, she received her PhD in Ethnomusicology from the University of Chicago.

Sunday Cinema is sponsored by the Wilkow Family.
It is the 2017 Solomon Goldman Program Series.
