Sexual Politics in the MENA Region

September 2, 2019
Columbia University

This panel will explore sexual politics in the MENA region, specifically emerging queer cinema as it integrates within the larger socio-political framework. The program will engage prominent and emerging LGBTQ filmmakers from the region in a meaningful discussion on the representation of LGBTQ issues in popular culture, and its reception by local and regional audiences. The filmmakers’ movies will be screened on campus the week prior to the event.
