Digital projection

We wrap up our Summer season with a captivating classic from the Golden Age of Egyptian Cinema. Tonight’s presenter is Tarab NYC, whose mission is to foster an inclusive and safe community for queer Arab and Middle Easter/North African people. A GLASS AND A CIGARETTE features several of the era’s brightest stars, including Samia Gamal who plays a woman transitioning from bellydance stardom to domestic bliss. For Tarab NYC this film is a perfect fit for QAF, as it takes “careful consideration of gender in relation to class, career, and performativities of sexual availability.”
