Film Screening Curated by Sana Makhoul

Featuring Edward Said: On Orientalism &
Introduction to the End of an Argument

Wednesday June 27, 2007 @ 7pm
$5-$15/sliding scale, general admission

Intersection for the Arts teams up with curator Sana Makhoul to present a film screening
featuring two films presented in conjunction with Most Wanted, the latest exhibition on
view in our gallery.

Edward Said: On Orientalism includes an engaging and lavishly illustrated interview with
the late Edward Said, whose book Orientalism has been profoundly influential in a diverse
range of disciplines since its publication in 1978. Said talks about the context within
which the book was conceived, its main themes, and how its original thesis relates to the
contemporary understanding of "the Orient" as represented in the mass media.

Introduction to the End of an Argument features a combination of film, documentary news
coverage, and excerpts of "live" footage shot in the West Bank and Gaza strip. This film
critiques representations of the Middle East, Arab culture, and the Palestinian people
produced by the West.
