Women Filmmakers in the African Diasporic World - Fall 2015 - New York University

Institute of African American Affairs
Department of Cinema Studies
New York University

Nadia El Fani, Pascale Obolo, and Hind Meddeb
These series of films by African and African diaspora women represent NYU’s Institute of African American Affairs and Cinema Studies’ continuing exploration of new approaches to film, gender and society. The screenings present a rare opportunity to have rich discussions with women directors Nadia El Fani, Pascale Obolo, and Hind Meddeb as they offer insight on the ways in which they engage the medium. Their films cast a new look at religion, sexuality, education, and music in areas of the world as diverse as Egypt, Tunisia, and Tobago. Through the contemporary social issues they address, they reframe/reflect on history and offer possibilities of the future.
