Abstract
This collection of essays and conversations sheds light on and discusses how images in films and animation have influenced identity portrayals in the Arab context. Published to accompany the first exhibition at the new Media Majlis at Northwestern University in Qatar, this beautifully crafted book discusses a spectrum of impressions and visual cues in film, both of and from the Arab world, that often unwittingly create distortions, in turn inspiring confidence or promoting stereotypes and even prejudices that have led to war or inter-regional conflicts of many kinds.
