1) Cine Club: Wednesday 22 November (Happy Independence)
Victor Erice’s masterpiece: The Spirit of the Beehive. A small poor and
uneventful village, 2 years after Franco took over Spain. A family is headed by a
father only concerned with his beehives, a mother who writes to imaginary
lovers and a little girl who dominates the film after she sees a version of Dr.
Frankenstein’s Monster. She is convinced by her sister that one can easily
befriend the monster and goes on a journey of fantasy as she confounds the
Monster with a deserter she found in a deserted house. (Spanish with English
subtitles). Click Here for more details.

2) Monday Talk: 27 November بعدنا طيبين
We lost Jean Chamoun a few months back. In 1976, and with Ziad Rahbani, he
broadcast on Radio Liban a large number of masterpieces called “Baadna
Taybeen”. The two were 19 years old then. The clips will be introduced by
Jihad Saade. They consist of visionary views by the two youngsters on the
situation in Lebanon. Many of them would be topical today. Of course, they
are also extremely funny. (Arabic).

3) Literary Club: Wednesday 29 November
The poet, Antoine Boulad, will be moderating a creative writing workshop that
focuses on POETRY: Pandora’s Poetry and Fun Writing. The languages you will
work with can be Arabic, French or English. Join us for a creative experience. It
was in 2006 that with other friends, we started “Work in Progress”, a literary
club based on Antoine’s suggestion: to foster creativity in writing.
