The guest speaker will be CAC Founding Board Member
Dr. John Makhoul

Synopsis:

The events of this film take place in Lebanon prior to World War I when most of the Arab countries were under the domination of the Ottoman Empire. These were very difficult days for the local population who had to endure injustice and cruelty, their crops confiscated to feed the army and young men recruited by force into the invaders’ army. If they tried to avoid recruitment and were caught they were sent into exile, hence the title of the film. The fight against oppression is fully illustrated in the film and told in the songs and music.

As always, this film screening is free and open to the public!

The event will take place at 191 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA, in Suite 6B.

For those of you who are new to the CAC,

Suite 6B is located on the lower level – not the 6th floor!

See you there!
