Intersections Film Festival

IstanbulThis fall Carole Woodall of the History Department is pleased to host the Intersections Film Festival from October 14-16. The festival features contemporary films from Middle Eastern directors, including Amreeka, which chronicles the adventures of Muna, a single mother who leaves the West Bank with Fadi, her teenage son, with dreams of an exciting future in the promised land of small town Illinois.  In America, as her son navigates high school hallways the way he used to move through military checkpoints, the indomitable Muna scrambles together a new life.
