Ten Arab Filmmakers: Political Dissent and Social Critique

by Josef Gugler (Editor)
£20.99   paperback  Indiana University Press (2015)

Ten Arab Filmmakers: Political Dissent and Social Critique by Josef Gugler (Editor) Ten Arab Filmmakers provides an up-to-date overview of the best of Arab cinema, offering studies of leading directors and in-depth analyses of their most important films.
 
The filmmakers profiled here represent principal national cinemas of the Arab world — Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Syria. Although they have produced many of the region’s most-renowned films and gained recognition at major international festivals, with few exceptions these filmmakers have received little critical attention. All ten share a concern with giving image and voice to people struggling against authoritarian regimes, patriarchal traditions, or religious fundamentalism — theirs is a cinéma engagé.
 
The featured directors are Daoud Abd El-Sayed, Merzak Allouache, Nabil Ayouch, Youssef Chahine, Mohamed Chouikh, Michel Khleifi, Nabil Maleh, Yousry Nasrallah, Jocelyne Saab, and Elia Suleiman.
