Berber Film Festival
June 2, LaGuardia Community College

Offering a selection of illuminating shorts, documentaries and features, the Berber Film Festival is proud to present these dissonant voices and their captivating tales of the Berber universe. Berbers, also known as the Imazighen, are the native peoples of North Africa. Films in Berber languages depicting Berber cultures were banned in North Africa until the 1990s, yet a vibrant video and film production has begun to emerge, exploring the human dramas of childhood, the struggle for education, and emigration. They have lived as farmers, craftspeople and merchants in these rugged lands between sea and desert for millennia. Today they represent a vibrant example of indigenous minorities within the larger Semitic world who strive to maintain their ethnic and linguistic identities despite an increasingly sectarian nationalism and a conservative understanding of Islam. Through a selection of illuminating shorts, documentaries and features, the Berber Film Festival is proud to present these dissonant voices and their captivating tales of the Berber universe.  RSVP and get your free tickets, lpac.nyc, June 2, 10:45 am-9 pm, LaGuardia Community College, 31-10 Thomson Avenue, Long Island City, Queens.
