THE SHORTS PROGRAM (Arab Film Festival)
Please come on out for the Arab Film Festival's Shorts program, featuring the following shorts from around the world -

PIONEER HIGH - USA, DIR. Suha Araj - In 1969, Hala moves from Palestine to Michigan and attends a public high school where girls cannot wear pants. With her limited English, Hala repeatedly disobeys the rules, wearing pants day after day. Ultimately, she unknowingly, or knowingly, starts a revolution at her new school.

AVE MARIA - Israel/Palestine/France, DIR. Basil Khalil -
Five nuns' silent routine of living in the West Bank wilderness is disturbed when an Israeli settler family's car breaks down right outside the convent, just as the Sabbath comes into effect.

MY OLD GRANDMOTHER - Lebanon/France, DIR. Hadi Moussally - For Myassar, days go by and blend into each other and all there is left to do is wait. A picture makes her relive memories and, little by little, her emotions begin to guide her story.

A LONG NIGHT - Iraq, DIR. Kamiran Betasi - In 1975, Iraqi Kurds began to settle in Iranian camps, among them a woman with her two children who left her husband in Iraq to fight with the Peshmarga. When an officer in the camp starts preying on single women in the night, the women devises a scheme to protect herself and her children.

OMNIA - United Arab Emirtes, DIR. Amna Al Nowais - A 27-year-old Egyptian Woman recalls the painful memory of partaking in a barbaric tradition as a child and her journey of healing as an adult.

WITH THY SPIRIT - Lebanon, DIR. Karim Rahbani - Father Geryes, a priest leading a peaceful life within his monastery in Lebanon, finds himself involved in a tragic accident. Will he have enough courage and integrity to face the consequences of his actions?

MASSOUD - Lebanon, DIR. Tania Iskandar - A man stuck in a huge traffic jam in Beirut decides to transform his car into a flying vehicle to escape from this nightmare, only to find he creates an even bigger one for himself.

REVOLTANGO - Lebanon/France, DIR. Elie Kamal - Facing imminent political turmoil in the streets, an anxious couple tries to safeguard their family and peace of mind with a tango dance. But it isn't long before invading television images transmute the nature of their dance.
