Synopsis

Quebec Premiere - In attendance of the Director Jawad Rhalib, March 19.
Presented with the support of the Délégation Wallonie-Bruxelles au Quebec

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. When Arabs Danced 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.

This film will also be presented in Quebec City on March 18th.
