Book A Screening

Playwright/Producer Jamil Khoury is available to deliver an in-person, 75-90 minute presentation framed around a screening of The Balancing Arab.  Khoury has been lauded for creating forums that are open, dynamic, non-accusatory, and non-judgmental.    

The Balancing Arab challenges widely held assumptions about Arab Americans, immigration, and assimilation.   It's an effective tool for framing conversations about activism, sociolinguistics, political messaging, and  21st century notions of Americanness.  

This highly interactive presentation is ideal for universities, colleges, conferences, libraries, corporations, faith groups, community organizations, and cultural institutions.
