Unfortunately, It Was Paradise

Unfortunately, It Was Paradise gathers films by artists of the Middle Eastern diaspora, mediating upon our seismic, global condition of physical immobility. The works trace elusive narratives of belonging grounded in questions of freedom and bondage. Film screenings will take place on Saturday July 25 and August 1 at 11:00 am EST. A panel discussion will follow both screenings.
