GRANDMA, A THOUSAND TIMES

Documentary
Teta Fatima is the 83-year-old matriarch of the Kaabour family and the sharp-witted queen bee of an old Beiruti quarter. This playful magical-realist documentary looks at Fatima's larger-than-life character as she struggles to cope with the silence of her once-buzzing house and imagines what awaits her beyond death.

After the Movie: The Doha Film Institute is pleased to invite New York audiences to celebrate Arab cinema with a special screening of the 2010 Doha Tribeca Film Festival Award Winner for Best Documentary, followed by a discussion on how the current uprisings in the Middle East region will affect the storytelling, production, and distribution of Arab films in North America and around the world. Panelists include director Mahmoud Kaabour, Richard Lorber, Co-President & CEO of Kino Lorber, Inc., writer/director Cherien Dabis, and director/producer Sherif Mandour. Moderated by international film consultant (France-Canada) Hayet Benkara.
