2:00 PM San Diego Arab Film Festival This year's San Diego Arab Film Festival features films from Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, USA and France. The Festival opens and closes with two very different films from Egypt, one a tense drama (Mawlana) and the other a quirky, personal look at friendship, grieving and loss (Ali, the Goat and Ibrahim). Two films from and about Palestine (Stitching Palestine and 1948: Creation and Catastrophe) will be presented by the filmmakers who will take questions from the audience after their respective screenings. For the first time, the Festival is offering a film that addresses issues of the Arab Diaspora in France. Tour de France focuses on the contentious relationship between an Arab rapper and a blustering French xenophobe (played by Gerard Depardieu) as they travel together through southern France. See below for more films from Morocco, Tunisia and Lebanon.

And, the San Diego Arab Film festival will pay tribute to Jack Shaheen who passed away in July. His book and film Reel Bad Arabs were groundbreaking studies of how Arabs have been portrayed in American cinema.
