East Window Gallery screening

 

This is a curated assemblage of my short films from the past 24 years. The films are glimpses of a life, a moment, and these devices that capture the allusive and allow me to ponder everything, all of this. I’m reaching for a personal expression and searching for the unknown within this mystical medium of cinema.

Nice Bombs screening at the Arab American National Museum

I’ll be giving an artist talk at the University of Michigan in Dearborn, and then will screen my documentary Nice Bombs at the Arab American National Museum on Tuesday, October 10, 2023 at 7pm.
Special thanks to my good friend Adam Sekuler for setting this up. I’ve never been to Dearborn and excited to connect with the students and the Arab community over there.
