Expressions: The Horror Film in Middle Eastern Cinema
October 29, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Middle Eastern media is underrepresented in mainstream media, and only in recent times have Middle Eastern actors, filmmakers, and writers received recognition for their contributions to the industry. However, despite the proliferation of Arab and Middle Eastern films, many of which tackle social and political issues associated with the region, there is a shortage of horror movies. In honor of QAIC’s Arab Film House opening this fall, the QAIC team will host a private screening Friday, October 29 featuring “Under the Shadow,” an Iranian horror movie by British-Iranian filmmaker Babak Anvari.
