JOIN US for the special screening of “Things Arab Men Say”

June 15, 2017



In response to the vilification of the Arab community by influential voices in the public realm, director Nisreen Baker brings us Things Arab Men Say, a short documentary that paints a very different picture of this multi-faceted group. Join Jay, Ghassan, and their friends as they gather at Jamal’s Eden Barber Shop for a haircut, a shave, and a lively discussion on politics, religion and identity.

At times serious, but laced with deft humour, the film follows the group as they debate the issues at hand and express often-surprising views that bring us closer to changing the narrative surrounding their community.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring:

  • Filmmaker Nisreen Baker
  • Arif Virani, MP for Parkdale – High Park & Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage (Multiculturalism)
  • Kamal Al-Solaylee, award-winning author and professor of journalism at Ryerson University
  • Moderated by Raja Khouri, co-founder and first president, Canadian Arab Institute, and former Ontario human rights commissioner.

When: Thursday June 15th; 6:00-8:30PM,

Where: Jackman Hall (AGO, 317 Dundas St W)

Tickets: $15.00 (Sold Out)
