About the film:
About a year after the Six Days War in 1968, Israel's single television channel began to broadcast a popular Egyptian film each Friday at 6pm. The broadcast, which continued throughout Israel's wars with its Arab neighbors until the early 1990s, became one of the most popular TV programs in Israel, despite the growing animosity toward Arab culture more generally. The film explores this phenomenon and returns viewers to a brief moment of genuine cultural exchange in the Middle East.

The 60 minute film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.

All are welcome
