Valentino’s Ghost: Cafe Disorient Screening

Including exhibition tour and Q & A with director Michael Singh

On the occasion of the current exhibition Cafe Disorient: Razzle Dazzle Edition, exhibiting artist Susanne Khalil Yusef is teaming up with WORM Pirate Bay programming an exciting film evening featuring Valentino’s Ghost! 

Valentino’s Ghost – Why We Hate Arabs And Muslims
Michael Singh, 2012, 95min, USA
Narrated by Mike Farrell, the documentary film Valentino’s Ghost exposes the way America’s foreign policy agenda in the Middle East influences Hollywood and mainstream corporate media portrayals of Arabs and Muslims. Premiering at the Venice Film Festival, Italy, to a standing ovation, Valentino’s Ghost tracks the transition from the Arab as Romantic Hero to the Arab today as the embodiment of evil.

Why do supremely talented artists and intellectuals in America consider it perfectly “realistic” to depict Arabs and Muslims in a fashion that would be described as bigoted, if applied to blacks, Jews, gays, Native Americans, et al?

The 100-minute film features fresh, riveting and often stunning perspectives from the legendary late American writer Gore Vidal; John Mearsheimer, author of “The Israel Lobby”,celebrated British war correspondent Robert Fisk, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Anthony Shadid, Harvard and Oxford historian Niall Ferguson, historian Melani McAlister, TV star Tony Shalhoub, media expert Jack Shaheen, and Hollywood writer Alan Sharp.
