Monday, October 13 – Wednesday, October 22: The Boston Muslim Film Festival
Published 10/7/2008 by Staff@Night

Since ancient times, Muslim cultures have valued the arts in all their multimedia glory. So it’s little surprise that the Art Under Fire! The Boston Muslim Film Festival will showcase films about a variety of artists. Democracy in Dakar is about politically-minded Senegalese underground hip-hop artists, who will perform live at the screening on October 20, at Boston University’s George Sherman Union (755 Comm Ave, Boston, 617.353.2921). Iranian-American stand-up comedians are the focus in the documentary Stand Up; you can catch them live, too, on October 15, also at the George Sherman Union. The festival’s theme this year is “Art Under Fire,” so expect to find films that address issues of censorship and hostility toward Muslim creative types. Screenings take place at various theaters and universities around town. The festival kicks off with Operation Filmmaker with Liev Schreiber on October 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Brattle Theatre (40 Brattle Street, Cambridge, 617.876.6
