Special thanks to Serge Bakalian and The Arab Film and Media Institute for organizing the Arab Film Festival, the nation’s oldest and largest Festival of Arab films! Also many thanks to Alexander Farrow (AFF) and to Scott Schwerdtfeger for allowing me to use video highlights from his footage. "From Baghdad to The Bay" follows the epic journey of Ghazwan Alsharif, an Iraqi refugee and former translator for the US military. After being wrongfully accused of being a double agent he is ostracized from his family and country. The film follows Ghazwan as he struggles to rebuild his life in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Stanford Lecturer + Radio Host Dr. Ramzi Salti moderated a lively film discussion at Stanford on June 13, 2018 following the screening of Maysaloun Hamoud's film "In Between بر بحر לא פה, לא שם"

The film was part of Stanford Global Studies' annual film festival featuring movies from all around the world. This summer's theme was “Friends & Family: Tales From Near and Far.” This screening was sponsored by the Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies.

Below is a video of the film discussion, moderated by Dr. Ramzi Salti, in which members of the audience expressed various points of view that contributed towards a much needed discourse that centers on women, gender roles and marginalized sexualities in the Middle East.
