The 5pm Post – Movies and Literature Thurs. Evening

This is timely:

This year’s film festival at the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art focuses on the films of Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria. Bound by geography, these disparate films capture the complexity of recent movies from and about North Africa. From contemporary Cairo and Marrakech, to the shifting sandscapes of Tunisia and Iran, to Algiers and Paris, these films are intimately tied with place, and show different sides of these often stunning and sometimes gritty backdrops.

Free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first served.

Thursday evenings at 7:00PM
950 Independence Ave
Lecture Hall, Sublevel 2
