About The Event
03/22: Film Viewing "At Night They Dance"
Look beyond the glitz and glamour of the nightclubs and stage to discover bellydance raw and real on the streets of Cairo. “At Night, They Dance” is follows Reda Ibrahim Sayed and her three daughters as they navigate a world where they, as professional dancers, are both desired and detested. French-Canadian Director Isabelle Lavigne uses this film to ask, "How does our environment make us what we are? Who shapes the dreams that we think are ours? How much space is left for being yourself?" In Egypt, the answer is increasingly complex when women are in a profession that both upholds and destroys common cultural norms.
Friday Night Movie & Lecture Series are FREE to the general public. You are welcome to bring your own beverage and snack and prepare to be DAZZLED by the Ancient East & all of it's Wonders!
