For the second year, MFA Film is delighted to collaborate with the Boston Palestine Film Festival to present a survey of the very best contemporary films being produced in the Arab region of North Africa and the Middle East. This year’s lineup includes Mohamed Diab’s Clash, a masterful documentary-style drama that takes place almost entirely in the back of a police truck where protestors and journalists are held captive during a protest in 2012 Egypt. For an introduction to Arab cinema or for experienced fans, this mini-festival is not to be missed.

Film fans who plan to see at least three films at the MFA in the month of June can purchase a June 3-film pass.
