In collaboration with Alwan for the Arts, the Museum will screen three recent films from Tunisia and Egypt as part of the series, Upheaval: Views of the Arab World. These films seek to offer three distinct views of today's Arab world and highlight the intense and profound cultural realities facing its people. 

Tickets to each film are $12 for the general public / $9 for students and senior citizens and include Museum admission. You can find more information on the series and order tickets online at the link here.

The civil strife and upheaval of today's Arab world are depicted in these outstanding recent films from Tunisia and Egypt. These dramatic and documentary features highlight the intense and profound cultural reality and visceral artistic representations of a people defined by geography, language and culture. The works express contemporary debates on identity, political injustice, economic inequality, and debates on traditions and social norms.
