With Director

Malik Chibane

Time: 7:00 pm

In association with the Middle East Film Festival

Voisins, Voisines

Mixing a hip-hop sound-track with gritty and at times surrealistic images, Voisins, Voisines explores the multi-ethnic world of the French banlieues, the disadvantaged urban spaces that gained world media attention during the riots of 2005. Director Malik Chibane, the son of Algerian immigrants, reveals in these seemingly dead-end spaces human depth and global resonance that transcend social and ethnic divides. After the screening he will answer questions from the audience.

This screening is part of the "Beur is Beautiful" touring exhibition organized by ArteEast. Malik Chibane's appearance is facilitated by support from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
