-- 7PM -- Screening of Documentary Film Valentino's Ghost! Followed by Extended Q&A w/ Director, Producer
Narrated by Mike Farrell, "Valentino's Ghost" examines the ways in which America's foreign policy agenda in the Middle East drives the U.S. media's portrayals of Arabs and Muslims.

What social, political and religious forces shifted the image of the Arab to socially acceptable portrayals of the peoples of the Middle East as uniformly barbaric, fanatical, violent, backward, and generically hateful toward America? Why do supremely talented artists and intellectuals in America consider it perfectly "realistic" to depict Arabs and Muslims in a fashion that would be described as bigoted, if the same treatment were applied to blacks, Jews, gays, Native Americans, et al?

The 95-minute film features fresh, riveting and often stunning perspectives from the legendary late American writer Gore Vidal; John Mearsheimer, author of "The Israel Lobby",celebrated British war correspondent Robert Fisk, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Anthony Shadid, Harvard and Oxford historian Niall Ferguson, historian Melani McAlister, TV star Tony Shalhoub, media expert Jack Shaheen, and Hollywood writer Alan Sharp, along with biting commentary in performances by comics Maz Jobrani, Aron Kader and Ahmed Ahmed.
