Introduction to the End of an Argument
Director: Jayce Salloum and Elia Suleiman, 1990, 41mins
Post-screening discussion: Jayce Salloum + M. Simon Levin

Trailer: https://www.vdb.org/titles/introduction-end-argument
Replicating the tone of a dizzying and oversaturated news cycle, the filmmakers deconstruct how dominant narratives influence and hold power. Through archival footage and reenactments, the film shows how cultural representation dehumanizes a people through a perpetually colonial gaze, and critiques the pervasive racism in the media’s portrayal of Arabs. Created in the ’90s, reflecting the politics of the ’80s, the film is as relevant as ever in these times.
