Nadi Cinema: Middle East Film Club



A screening of the film You will die at 20 (Amjad Abu Alala, Sudan 2019) will be given at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 20, in the Hembree Auditorium of the Agriculture and Life Sciences Building.

In this “film about the advent of death”, a young man prophesied to die at 20 and pampered from birth faces his fate (Arabic with English subtitles, 108 minutes).

Nadi Cinema, the Middle East Film Club, screens films from the Middle East and often beyond. All movies – classics, cults, recent hits, comedies, tragedies, political thrillers, social commentaries and romances, in black and white and vivid color – have English subtitles.

The series is hosted by Professor Joel Gordon and usually meets monthly. Come and see films as they were filmed to be shown – in a darkened theater with friends and strangers.

All screenings are free and open to the public and take place at 7 p.m. in the Hembree Auditorium, Room 107E in the Agriculture, Food and Life Sciences (AFLS) Building, adjacent to the Center for Health Pat Walker on Maple Street. Metered parking is available nearby at the Garland Avenue Parking Garage.
