OBOA - Things Arab Men Say

In this antidote to mainstream-media depictions of Arab men, we get to meet Jay, Ghassan and their friends, who gather at Jamal’s Eden Barber Shop in Edmonton to discuss politics, religion and family over a cut and a shave. Often funny, sometimes sad, this engaging NFB film documents the challenges these men face integrating into Canadian life while preserving their identity and culture.

 

Screening followed by Q&A with Raja Khouri.
