Films of the Middle East

Dr. Mehrak Kamali

 Film, from Egypt to Iran, from Israel to Turkey, offers a unique window on the diverse histories, societies and cultures of the modern Middle East. As a popular art form, film lets us see both the realities and the fictions of Middle Eastern lives. This course will focus on technical, aesthetic, thematic and social dimensions of Middle Eastern films. Students will become familiar with contemporary Middle Eastern cultures and different approaches to analyzing film.
