Arabic Movie

Documentary exploring Egyptian movies and the Middle East

Back in the day, it was traditional for Israeli families to sit together and watch a Friday afternoon Egyptian movie. Ashkenazi and Palestinians alike observed this informal ritual. Whatever happened to it? Arabic Movie explores the phenomenon that saw hostilities and prejudices set aside, if only for the duration of a movie. This nostalgic documentary will strike a chord with anyone who spent their formative years in the Middle East.
