Stockholm puts spotlight on Arab world

Cannes Brief

The Stockholm Intl. Film Festival (Nov 16-26) is to present a Spotlight section devoted to films from the Arab world this year. The selection, called “Arabica,” will focus on the works by a new generation of Arabic directors, whose films often deal with social subjects or taboos.

The festival’s Arabica selection includes three films so far: Egyptian “The Yacoubian Building” by helmer Marwan Hamed, Algerian “Barakat!” (Enough!) by Djamila Sahraoui and Moroccan “Heaven’s Doors” by brothers Imad and Swel Noury.

Fest will also arrange debates on the theme.
