Film Screening: Cherien Dabis' "Amreeka" (2009)

Please join the DLCL for a screening of  Cherien Dabis' "Amreeka" (2009)! This film is a part of the DLCL Film Series: Images of America - German Cinema and Beyond. Join us every Wednesday from April 3rd to June 5th for a new film.

This heart-warming portrait of a Palestinian American family moving to suburban Illinois, confronts us in an entertaining way with the situation of Arabic immigrants in post 9/11 America. Cherien Dabis' reflection on home and where to find it won her the FIRESCI Prize at the Cannes Festival in 2009.
