Documentary: Reel Bad Arabs

Tuesday July 23, 2019
6:00 PM until 8:00 PM


Reel Bad Arabs. 2006. 50 min. This film is an extension of the book of the same name by Jack Shaheen, which also analyzes how Hollywood corrupts or manipulates the image of Arabs. Documentary analyses 1000 films that have Arab and Muslim characters, produced between 1896 to 2000, out of which great majority, 936 titles, were negative in their portrayal, arguing that the slander of Arabs in American filmmaking has existed since the early days of the silent cinema and is present in the biggest Hollywood blockbusters today.
