Some of Arab America's staff were fortunate to attend a discussion of Switzerland's official submission to the Academy Awards "Iraqi Odyssey". The event was hosted by the Ambassador of Switzerland, Martin Dahinden (third from left) and attended by the director of the film, Samir (third from right). #Arabfilm #arabculture #film

في هذا الأسبوع نسلط الضوء على الفيلم العربي "محبس سوليتير" للمخرجة صوفي بطرس الذي يعرض حالياً في سينما فوكس في مول الإمارات دبي و ياس مول في أبوظبي.
يحكى في الوسط أن الفيلم سيكون "أفضل فيلم لبناني لهذا العام"، ويعد الفيلم أول عمل روائي لبناني أخرجته صوفيا بطرس كما ساهمت في كتابة السيناريو بالإضافة إلى تدريسها لكتابة السيناريو والإنتاج في جامعة أبوظبي.
تدور أحداث الفيلم الدرامي الكوميدي حول امرأة لبنانية تأصل فيها الحقد والكراهية للسوريين بعد مقتل أخيها في حادثة تفجير أثناء الحرب. لا تفوتوا فرصة مشاهدته الفيلم!
This week it is Sophie Bourtos’ Mahbas (Solitaire) playing now at Vox Cinemas MOE and Yas Mall. Hailed as ‘the most beautiful Lebanese film of the year’, Mahbas is directed by first time Lebanese features director and co-scriptwriter Boutros, who also teaches script writing and production at Abu Dhabi University. The comedic drama tells the story of a Lebanese woman who holds a decades-old grudge against Syrians, due to her brother’s passing from a Syrian bomb attack. A must watch! #ادعم_السينما_العربية #arabfilm #lebanon

"Stories from our diverse communities and cultures bring a richness to our lives, and at a time when we all carry small screens in our pockets and have access to content from all around the world, there is something even more special about experiencing something together for the first time, on the big screen, in a spirit of celebration and community" – Grainne Brunsdon speaking at the launch of @arabfilmfestau at @riversideparra

@AmrmSalama's highly-awaited film, #SheikhJackson, is premiering at #TIFF (7-17 September) and we can't wait to see it! The story surrounds the death of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and an Egyptian Sheikh who has a crisis of faith when he hears the news that his childhood idol has died.

أعلن الاختيار الرسمي لفيلم #الشيخ_جاكسون ضمن فعاليات مهرجان تورونتو السينمائي الدولي، ليكون عرضه الأول العالمي ضمن فعاليات "العروض المميزة"للمهرجان، وسيكون أيضا فيلم الختام. تعود أحداث الشيخ جاكسون إلى 2009 وخبر وفاة مايكل جاكسون الذي هزَّ العالم، خاصةً أحد الشيوخ الذي كان يلقبه الجميع بجاكسون في سنوات الدراسة، لكن ماذا يربط شيخ وإمام مسجد بأسطورة الطرب الأميركي؟ ⠀

Friends in Jordan: We are looking to cast characters for our upcoming short film “Al Atrash Wal Zaffeh”, a black comedy set in a fictional Arabic country. On the day of his engagement, Mustafa, a very unlucky delivery man accidentally stumbles on the President’s secret hiding place, and is immediately mistaken for an assassin.

If you’re interested, and for more details, kindly send an email to: yazan.alghazzawi@gmail.com

The characters:
1 – Mustafa
Mustafa is a 30-year-old delivery guy. He comes from a modest and simple background. He is street savvy, loves a simple life, straightforward, honest and taciturn. He maintains good relations with his family, especially with his father who he hates to upset.
Mustafa is of average height and weight.

2 – Agent Amin

Amin is a 42-year-old secret service agent. He is very loyal, and goes above and beyond to serve his country and President. He has been passed up for promotions several times, which upsets him because he feels like he really deserves them.

He’s losing his hair from stress, is of medium height, a little overweight, and looks like he lives on coffee and cigarettes.

3 – Agent Hazem

Hazem is a 35-year-old senior secret service agent. He is the superstar of his department, and is both charming and authoritative at the same time. He is highly intelligent and cunning.

He is fairly tall, well-built and attractive. 4 – Agent Rami

Rami is a 25-year old junior secret service agent. He is cheeky, and almost always hungry. He is very into Turkish soap opera series.

He’s of average height, and quite slim.

5 – Agent Saleem

Saleem is a 35-year old mid-level secret service agent. He’s very respectful of authority, and is also into Turkish soap opera series

He is kind looking, fairly short, and a little on the heavy side.

The Elia Suleiman trilogy. What an amazing story of a man and his native land in which the man does not talk!

Chronicles Of A Disappearance (1997), Divine Intervention (2002), The Time That Remains (2009) all directed and written by Elia Suleiman.
