Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 7th at 7:30pm for Driving to Zigzagland at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston . Look for Corinna wearing red sneakers in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
“A chronicle of a day in the life of a Palestinian cab driver in Los Angeles, Driving To Zigzigland, portrays the social struggle of the Arab immigrant in post-9/11 America. A film audition typecasts Bashar to play an Al Qaeda terrorist role. Bashar has twenty-four hours to make enough money to pay his bills. For the remaining hours left until tomorrow, an unceasing flow of passengers ride in his taxi and give the Arab cabbie the run-around on issues that deal with suicide bombers, George Bush, Rai music and world geography. All the while, BasharÂ’s nostalgia for Ramallah poses the question of whether or not the American Dream is an idea really worth fighting for. Shot in Los Angeles and Palestine, based on true stories.”
