Bombarded as we are by news and opinions of varying levels of urgency and truth, I wonder if there has ever been a more important time to pause and take a look behind the noise and headlines. This series offers us all a rare and timely opportunity to journey to worlds we think we understand but really can’t claim to know. I’m excited to see you all in September for the eighth edition of Contemporary Arab Cinema—another week of award-winning movies, drinks, friendship, and more.
