This course provides an introduction to the politics, society, and culture of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). We do this through examining some of the most famous and interesting films from this region of the world. After watching these films, we will discuss and debate some of the most intransigent and controversial problems facing the contemporary Middle East, including democratization, authoritarianism, political Islam, the oil economy, terrorism, foreign intervention, gender relations, international relations with the west, the refugee/migration crisis, and other topics.
