THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Arab Cinema rarely reaches American audiences, particularly that of Syria's. Organized by ArteEast, Lens on Syria is the first North American retrospective of a stellar period of Syrian cinema-from the 1970s through today- and is a particularly timely and relevant program in the context of contemporary Middle East tensions. "With an annual production never exceeding more than one or two feature films a year, many filmmakers are forced to wait years between projects; consequently, filmmakers are intensely aware that each film, each shot, really has to count. Working under what can only be described as very difficult conditions-ranging from the watchful eyes of the censors to the lack of a real industrial infrastructure for film production-Syrian filmmakers have nevertheless managed to create a powerful and provocative cinema, with films brimming with both personal expression as well as perceptive social analysis that are often startling in their courage and commitment."- Richard Peña, Program Director, Film Society of Lincoln Center

Cinema can be entertainment and escape, but for many committed filmmakers its most compelling role is as a vital medium of information and powerful tool for social change. Tackling wide ranging, thought-provoking issues, these filmmakers help deepen our awareness of the values of dignity, equality, and justice as they tell universal stories of human struggle, sacrifice, and triumph. Among the premiere showcases for work by activist filmmakers is the annual Human Rights Watch International Film Festival which celebrates the work of committed media makers while focusing hearts and minds on the challenges that still confront humanity. Drawing from films presented at HRW and other international events focused on global humanitarian issues, we hope that the works presented here will broaden understanding and stimulate involvement as they reveal the hardship, courage, and commitment of others.

Devotees of French film have their passions and none are stronger than for the singular mode of biting satire, anarchistic farce, antic slapstick, and witty wordplay that hallmark French comedies. This selection of eight rarely screened classics featuring French audience and critical favorites from the late 1970s onward, features the work of many of the top writers, directors, and actors in the field and will be sure to inspire further digging for laughs. This touring program is organized and circulated by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs Culture Paris. Special thanks to Marie Bonnel, French Cultural Services, New York.
