What is the relationship between the violence “there” and the violence “here?” How are the conditions of people “there” connected to what happens to them “here?” TONIGHT: My Beard Forever (Arabi, USA, 1999, 17 min.) This film presents a disconcerting collage of news media portrayals of violence in the Middle East. It dramatizes the effect of this media barrage, particularly on Arab Americans, through the reactions of one man. In Whose Interest? (Kaplowitz, USA, 2002, 27 min.) Through five case studies -- Guatemala, Vietnam, East Timor, El Salvador, Palestine/Israel -- this film asks who has benefited from US foreign policy. Short answer: not the peoples on whom it has been imposed. For complete schedule, see http://www.ucsf.edu/global/pages/film_festival.html
