At the cinéma les 3 Luxembourg - 67 rue monsieur le prince 75006 paris
Middle East: What Cinema Can Do is proud to present close to 40 films over a 10-day period. As always the majority of them are documentaries, but also a couple Palestinian feature films (Under the Same Sun by Sameh Zoabi and Eyes of a Thief by Najwa Najjar) will make their premieres in Paris, along with more than a dozen other films. Filmmakers are expected to join us daily for Q&A sessions or the evening debates.

From the more than 150 films previewed, the films were chosen to illustrate the themes in which they will be shown, from Lebanon refugee camps to women assuming their profession in Iran, the turmoil in Syria, the unchanging face of Egypt towards women today and the chaos in Libya. At the center of this event is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which only continues to fester unfortunately.
