Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies A People Documentary

Russell Union, Room 2041

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This groundbreaking documentary dissects a slanderous aspect of cinematic
history that has run virtually unchallenged from the earliest days of silent film
to today's biggest Hollywood blockbusters. The film explores a long line of
degrading images of Arabs--from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to
sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding "terrorists"--along the way offering
devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypic images, their
development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today.
