The Changing Image of the Jew in Egyptian Cinema and TV – 3rd November

The Changing Image of the Jew in Egyptian Cinema and TV

Despite being a small and now almost extinct minority in Egypt, Jews have been always present on the Egyptian screen. Our speaker will trace the evolution of the image of Jews in Egyptian Cinema and TV, from being an ethnic group with comic accents to spies and members of the Israeli army. What effect has the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Arab Spring had on the image of Jews? Has Egyptian public opinion shifted towards more objectivity and less stereotyping?

Illustrated lecture by Dr Menna Abukhadra
