Ibtisam Mara’ana, an incredibly courageous young filmmaker, will be at the Wilmette Theatre this Weds PM to screen her new film LADY KUL EL-ARAB (“Lady of All the Arabs”). The screening begins @ 6 PM, followed by a Q&A (to be moderated by me). Click here to read more info about LADY KUL EL-ARAB.
This screening is sponsored by the Chicago Festival of Israeli Cinema, & LADY KUL EL-ARAB is my top pick this year in the Doc category.
