The Stockholm Film Festival, running Nov. 16-26, will include a spotlight section devoted to films from the Arab world. The selection, Arabica, will focus on the works by a new generation of directors, whose films often address social subjects or taboos.
Selection includes three films so far, Egypt’s “The Yacoubian Building,” by helmer Marwan Hamed; Algeria’s “Barakat!” (Enough!), from Djamila Sahraoui; and Morocco’s “Heaven’s Doors,” by brothers Imad and Swel Noury.
Fest also will host debates on the theme.
