This year, the newly inaugurated Pardee School for Global Studies has begun a new film series initiative: “Global Fridays: Promoting Cultural Understanding Through Film.” Inspired by journalist E. Nina Rothe's article “Six Films That Could Save the World” and spearheaded by the Center for the Study of Europe, the fall 2014 series - “Stories from Israel and Palestine” is a collaboration between the Institute for the Study of Muslim Societies and Civilizations, Middle East and North African Studies, the Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies, and the Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literatures. Screenings take place at 3 PM on Fridays throughout the semester. Click link below for full list of films. On Friday, November 14, we are screening Paradise Now, Hany Abu-Assad's exploration of the lives of young Palestinians who debate, in word and deed, the utility and morality of different means of resistance to Israel’s 38-year occupation of Palestinian lands.
