​The Ego: A Conversation with Saudi Filmmaker Hamzah Jamjoom
Takoma | Nicolás Guillén Room | January 9, 2017 | 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Saudi writer, director, and producer Hamzah Jamjoom will take us on a conceptual, visual journey through the artist's ego in the filmmaking process, flitting between reality and imagination. Following his contribution to the successful IMAX feature film ARABIA 3D and over a decade of experience in the industry, Jamjoom reassesses multicultural approaches to the art of narrative, cinematography, truth, dialogue, and collaboration. This screening and discussion explores Jamjoom's search to find a healing, selfless, and universal language through which to tell the stories of the Middle East and, at the heart of things, humanity.
