The Resilient Spring of Arab Cinema, Ten Years After

Both before and after the 2011 uprisings known as the Arab Spring, films made in the region and in exile have been a driving force in raising issues, representing dispersed voices, and alerting global audiences to the immense shifts taking place in Arab societies.  

Film Quarterly marks the 10-year anniversary of these uprisings with a webinar discussion based on its special dossier (Winter 2021) devoted to pivotal works of Arab cinema since 2011.  

Dossier co-editor and contributor Rasha Salti and FQ editor B. Ruby Rich moderate a conversation with contributors Donatella Della Ratta (John Cabot University), Kay Dickinson (University of Glasgow), and Stefan Tarnowski (Columbia University).
