At a time when mass media often depicts Arab culture in reductive and negative terms, the Edmonton-based Egyptian-Canadian filmmaker Nisreen Baker has set out to fashion a more nuanced portrait of her own immediate immigrant community. Her short doc Things Arab Men Say is set at Jamal’s Eden Barbershop, an establishment in St. Albert, just north of Edmonton. A discussion will follow the movie.
