Directed by Jawad Rhalib | 2018

While much of the discourse surrounding contemporary Muslim life focuses on repression, war, and fundamentalism, When Arabs Danced issues a powerful corrective to those reductive stereotypes. Through richly sensorial, immersive portraits of boundary-pushing Muslim dancers, actors, and artists at work, this vibrant documentary serves as a much-needed reminder that music, movement, and creative expression have long been central to Arab identity.
