Arabic Club Movie Night: “Molasses”/”عسل إسود”

On Friday, November 8th the Arabic Club and students and faculty of the Arabic Department got together to watch the Egyptian comedy film “Molasses,” or “Assal Eswed” (literally, “black honey”). The film, starring Ahmed Helmy, tells the story of an Egyptian-American who returns to Egypt for the first time in 20 years. He thinks that the transition will be no problem at all, but he soon learns, the hard way, that he lacks street smarts. The result is an amusing story of a man struggling to reconnect with his home country and his family.

Everyone enjoyed the film! Thank you to the Dickinson College Middle East Studies Department for providing pizza for this event.

Special thanks to Sarah Saleh, our Fulbright Teaching Assistant, for choosing this film and planning the event. Shukran habibti!

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.
