Satin Rouge

"Satin Rouge" will be shown on Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Directed by Raja Amari, the film (in Arabic with English subtitles) tells the story of a newly widowed middle-aged woman (Hiam Abbass) who learns that her teenage daughter (Hend El Fahem) is dating an older musician named Chokri (Maher Kamoun). The mother goes to the nightclub where Chokri performs to confront him, but she is drawn to the club’s troupe of belly dancers and soon begins learning how to perform the sensuous dances herself. In time, she becomes a performer at the club and becomes closer to Chokri.

The film will be followed by refreshments and conversation. All screenings are free and open to the public.
