Meydan Film Series: The Time That Remains

February 22

7:30pm - 10:30pm

Margery Reed Hall, Room 113, Reiman Theater

Join us for our second Meydan film screening of the Winter 2019 season, featuring The Time That Remains, directed by Elia Suleiman.

Post-film discussion will be led by Sophie Schor, PhD student at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.

Synopsis from the director: "THE TIME THAT REMAINS is a semi-biographical film, in four episodes, about a family, my family, from 1948 until recent times. The film is inspired by my father's private diaries, starting from when he was a resistance fighter in 1948, and by my mother's letters to family members who were forced to leave the country since that time. Combined with my intimate memories of them and with them, the film attempts to portray the daily life of those Palestinians who remained and were labeled 'Israeli-Arabs', living as a minority in their own homeland."

Hebrew/Arabic w/English subtitles (109 minutes).

Meydan: Middle East Film Series at DU is an invitation to engage with the Middle East on the level of culture and everyday life through the region's extraordinary cinema. Once a month on Friday nights, we present a fascinating film from the Middle East followed by an informal discussion with a scholar of the region — all free of charge and open to the general public, and held in the beautiful Reiman Theatre in Margery Reed Hall (located on the southwest corner of University and Evans).

This and all Meydan screenings are free of charge and open to the public.
