Au temps où les Arabes dansaient
Au temps où les Arabes dansaient
In collaboration with the Festival International du Film sur l'Art de Montréal, we invite you to discover the documentary Au temps où les Arabes dansaient, by Belgian-Moroccan filmmaker Jawad Rhalib, on December 4th at 7 pm at the Baked Cafe.
An enlightening look at the battles waged by women and artists in societies plagued with fundamentalism. The film explores Arab-Muslim culture and its historically rich world of literature, cinema, dance, and music, focusing on Egypt under the Nasser government from the 1950s through the 1970s. Au temps où les Arabes dansaient is a deep reflection on the complex future of multicultural Western societies. Based on director Jawad Rhalib's own childhood memories, archival footage documenting the golden age of Middle Eastern dance, and contemporary interviews with cultural figures, the film is a vibrant plea for liberty.
