    Intersection for the Arts teams up with curator Sana Makhoul to present a film screening

    featuring two films presented in conjunction with Most Wanted, the latest exhibition on

    view in our gallery.

    Edward Said: On Orientalism includes an engaging and lavishly illustrated interview with

    the late Edward Said, whose book Orientalism has been profoundly influential in a diverse

    range of disciplines since its publication in 1978. Said talks about the context within

    which the book was conceived, its main themes, and how its original thesis relates to the

    contemporary understanding of "the Orient" as represented in the mass media.

    Introduction to the End of an Argument features a combination of film, documentary news

    coverage, and excerpts of "live" footage shot in the West Bank and Gaza strip. This film

    critiques representations of the Middle East, Arab culture, and the Palestinian people

    produced by the West.
