SP 02 Arab Film Festival San Francisco - Arab Shorts

There is not just one Arab world, there are many: In cooperation with Arab Film Festival, San Francisco, interfilm will therefore present a diversified programme that reflects the multifaceted wealth of Arab culture and reveals insights into worlds that usually remain concealed. Significant themes such as tradition and modernisation are included here alongside the everyday dreams, fears, hopes and longings of the protagonists - through whose eyes we observe and discover just how rich the variety of Arab culture.
