A Tale of Two Syrias: New York screening

A Tale of Two Syrias (Dir. Yasmin Fedda) is to be screened at Alwan For the Arts in New York on Wednesday March 19th 2014 at 7pm.

Since 1998, Alwan has played a leading role in promoting the diverse cultures of the Middle East in New York and the tri-state metropolitan area. Alwan’s inaugural activities entailed screening evocative films in academic settings. These screenings evolved into a film festival that soon became the largest event of its kind outside of the Middle East. Since its founding, Alwan has continually expanded its programming, which now includes concerts, dance performances, academic book talks, poetry readings, panel discussions, theatrical performances, visual arts exhibits, as well as educational offerings in language, dance, and music. Alwan has grown into a cultural and aesthetic hub, curating up to 100 events each year.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Director, Yasmin Fedda.
