ALC ALIF Film Club: Dear White People

A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world

Friday Movie at ALIF Riad

Film at the ALIF Riad: Friday, Feb. 3 at 7 PM

Bab’Aziz is particularly concerned with Sufi themes. Khemir has stated that he wished to show, in the film, “an open, tolerant and friendly Islamic culture, full of love and wisdom…” an Islam that is different from the one depicted by the media in the aftermath of 9/11, and that the unusual structure of the film was a deliberate attempt to imitate the structure of Sufi visions and dances, aimed at allowing the spectator “forget about his own ego and to put it aside in order to open up to the reality of the world.”
