Films from the Arab countries are woefully absent from UK screens. The number released over the past 3 years can be counted on one hand, an omission that can be seen as both a cultural and political issue in the current climate. This new initiative from Medscreen aims to redress that imbalance with a selection of films from the Arab countries and territories of the MEDA region (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, Syria, Tunisia). Medscreen is a programme that endeavors to endorse the Arab film industry of the 8 Arab MEDA countries and is supported by the European Union in the framework of the Euromed audiovisual programme. With thanks to Beirut DC and Europa Cinemas.
