Special Programs - Middle Eastern & North African Film Series: Valentino's Ghost

Valentino's Ghost
Director, Michael Singh, USA, 93 min, 2011

Valentino's Ghost depicts a chronological journey through more than a century of images of Muslims, Arabs and Islam in the U.S. media, from the early 20th-century fantasies of romantic sheiks to today's damaging stereotypes as evil fanatics. The film shows how the changing image of Arabs and Muslims has mirrored America's political agenda in the Middle East.

Sponsored by UWM's Center for International Education, Middle Eastern and North African Studies Certificate, Arabic Language Program, Center for Jewish Studies, Women's Studies and Film Studies. The film series is made possible through a grant by the U.S. Department of Education.
