Leila Khaled

I found these links on a blog which has been removed and is no longer available. The links still work though so in an effort to keep them alive, I am posting it here. Please note the subtitles aren't included. if you dig around for them and find them please post them here to help others.

A story about an extraordinary woman and her journey, the jury decided to award Lina Makboul´s film, Leila Khaled Hijacker the award for Best Film because of its nuanced politics of nationhood and gender. This film about a Palestinian woman hijacker challenges our assumptions about those who resort to violent means in response to oppression and gives us access to the politics of one of the most troubled regions of the twentieth century. It also complicates the current discourse on Islam and terrorism by its deliberation on the meanings of terms such as "terrorist", interrogating and asking if one person's terrorist could be another's freedom fighter. Especially relevant in the context of today's highly polarized conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and closer home in Kashmir, this self-reflexive film echoes in its treatment, the complexity of its arguments, using evocative imagery both verité as well as reconstructed as well as archival footage in an extremely creative manner.

Does anyone happen to know where I can find subtitles to the movie, Halet Hob?

I bought a 2 disk copy in Egypt this past summer but it doesn't have subtitles. I've been looking around on various sites but I haven't found anything.

Any help would be appreciated! ^_^

The Battle of Algiers

From Wikipedia:
Gillo Pontecorvo (November 19, 1919 – October 12, 2006) was a Jewish Italian filmmaker, best known for La battaglia di Algeri (The Battle of Algiers) although he directed several movies before its release in 1966, such as the drama Kapò (1960), which takes place in a World War II concentration camp.

He was nominated for the Best Director Oscar in 1969 and in that same year won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, both for The Battle of Algiers. In 2000, he received the Pietro Bianchi Award at the Venice Film Festival.

He was also a screenwriter and composing music scores.

The Battle of Algiers, a portrayal of the Algerian resistance during the Algerian War, follows in the footsteps of neorealist pioneers such as de Santis and Rossellini, employing the use of newsreel-style footage and non-professional actors and focusing primarily on the disenfranchised population that seldom receives attention from the general media. Pontecorvo was clearly reading Frantz Fanon while making The Battle of Algiers, as many of Fanon's notions are echoed in the film, though often simplified. When the film achieved mass screening in the United States, Pontecorvo received a number of awards, and was also nominated for two Academy Awards for direction and co-writing. The film has been used as a training video by government strategists as well as revolutionary groups. It has been and remains extremely popular in Algeria, providing a popular memory of the struggle for liberation.

From BBC:
Gillo Pontecorvo
Pontecorvo was nominated for two Oscars Italian film-maker Gillo Pontecorvo, who directed The Battle Of Algiers, has died at the age of 86.

Pontecorvo's film depicted the brutality of both sides during the guerrilla uprising against French colonial rule in 1950s Algeria.

Shot like a documentary, the highly influential film was banned in France for some time, while its scenes of torture were cut in the US and Britain.

Twice an Oscar nominee, Pontecorvo also directed Marlon Brando in Queimada.

A resistance fighter during World War II, Pontecorvo maintained strong political passions that were reflected in his movies.

The Battle of Algiers won the 1969 Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion and was nominated for three Oscars in the best director, best screenplay and best foreign language film categories.

In 2003 the Pentagon screened the film to officers and civilian experts who were considering the challenges faced by the U.S. military in Iraq, the New York Times reported.

A flier inviting guests to the screening read: "How to win a battle against terrorism and lose the war of ideas."

Although he only directed a handful of movies, he maintained involvement in films and for two years was the director of the Venice Film Festival from 1992-4.

The news came on the eve of the first Rome Film Festival.

Salaam Aleykoom!

I'm a young American Muslim who is sick and tired of only hearing about Islam in headlines. So I've started a new line of clothing and gifts that is geared towards young, modern Muslims who are ready to make their own headlines. Some political, some funny, some religious, and lots of ARABIC! So check it out, please spread the word if you dig it, and check in periodically for new designs.

And if you like it, WEAR IT WITH PRIDE!

I have these films, which should I post here next? I haven't watched or heard of any of them before (except Paradise Now, but I will be uploading that soon anyway). I'm leaning to ElSefarah Fi ElOmara because it might be political comedy from the looks of it.

ElSefarah Fi ElOmara
Hamada Yelaab
Harim Karim
Sayed El-Aatefy
Ya Ana Ya Khalti

Abu Ali
Ahlam Omrena
Bahebak W Bamoot Feek
Banat West El-Balad
Halet Hob
Haramyia Fe Thailand
Hobak Naar
Paradise Now
3eyal 7abibah

Harb Italia
Youm El Karama

or this comedy:
Khalee min al cholesterol
الفيلم كوميدى غنائي يدور فى عالم الاعلانات وتفاصيله المثيرة حيث يتمتع أيوب بموهبة فى هذا المجال وتساعده والدته المعاقة ذهنياً التى تفكر كالأطفال وبالتالي تساعده على الوصول للجديد ولكن صاحب الوكالة الاعلانية يحاول ان يغير من أفكاره ومعتقداته بوسائل غير مشروعة ويستمر الصدام بينهما حتى ينتقم أيوب بوسيلة جديدة تماما لم يتوقعها أحد
