      FILMS:

      GENTLE GRANDMOTHER
      Director: Yahya Abdallah
      A surreal drama which explores the complex effects of well-intentioned but
      coercive child-rearing practices suffered by little Mohannad, and their
      harmful, long-term consequences.
      Language: Arabic/French subtitles
      Duration: 9 min.

      ARAB TERRORISTS MANAGEMENT CAMP
      Director: Dalia Alkury
      Say what? Arab Terrorists Management Camp (ATMC)? Yup, the rumors are true.
      Goodbye video art and say hi to IN-YOUR-FACE mockumentary. Dalia's
      no-holds-barred film takes a lighthearted jab at America's so-called war on
      terror. ATMC is a re-conditioning camp for would-be Arab terrorists, run by
      a self-righteous red-neck who is the epitome of the collective shallowness
      of US Mideast experts and policymakers.
      Language: English
      Duration: 9 min.

      HEARTACHE
      Directors: Mais & Hussam Hamarneh
      Both formally engaged and both are madly in love with filmmaking. Mais and
      Hussam, who were influenced by best-selling book "Men are from Mars, Women
      are from Venus," have decided to make their first short drama focused on the
      issue of male-female miscommunication.
      Language: Arabic
      Duration: 5 min.

      DEATH BY CHOCOLATE
      Director: AFC's Class of July `04
      Students of the July filmmaking workshops, held at Darat al Funun, had one
      thing in common: none of them had a working video camera. So to maximize the
      benefit of the filmmaking workshop, the class decided to produce a short
      film in one day using the instructor's video camera. The script was
      collectively developed, filmed, and edited on a Friday. Some touches were
      added later on. The mockumentary, in the spirit of a trend started by Dalia
      Alkury, pokes fun at chocolate lovers. Titled "Death by Chocolate," the film
      promotes rehabilitation services for chocolate addicts in Amman, and exposes
      the darker side of chocolate addiction and even rehabilitation.
      Language: Arabic/English subtitles
      Duration: 5 min.
