16.9.2020 at 17:00 (German time) Online 
In the framework of the 11. ALFILM Nomad Edition in the SPOTLIGHT-program „Resistance is Female“: Panel Discussion »Arab filmmakers and feminist filming«
The lives of women in films from the Arab world are often viewed with particular interest by the audience. Especially in exceptional situations of war and conflicts, feminine or feminist perspectives seem to offer connecting points for the audience, international colleagues, and funding institutions alike. How do the filmmakers position themselves between these poles of internal and external expectations, their own attitudes in film politics and the local production conditions?
What are the priorities and what influence does their work and attitude have on the perception of the situation in and outside the Arab world? Naziha Arebi, director of FREEDOM FIELDS, Waad Al-Kateab, co-director of FOR SAMA, and Zahraa Ghandour, leading actress of THE JOURNEY will discuss with moderator Irit Neidhardt, author, curator, and film distributor at mec film.
