MoMA Bringing Their Arab Cinema Festival Back for a Second Year

"The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni" is among the experimental Arabic films screening in October at MoMA.

New York's The Museum of Modern Art will be holding the second annual installment of "Mapping Subjectivity: Experimentation in Arab Cinema from the 1960s to Now" from October 5-23 in association with the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.

The festival opens with "Chronicle of the Years of Embers," Mohamed Lakhdar-Hamina's colonial epic, which won the Palme D'Or and will have its U.S. premiere in a new cut. Other highlights include the international premiere of Azzeddine Meddour's "How Much I Love You" and the U.S. premiere of Ahmed el-Maânouni's "Alyam! Alyam!," the first Moroccan film to play at the Cannes Film Festival.
