THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
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)
