Tripoli, 31 October 2013:
There will be a film showing of gangster movie . . .[restrict]Outside the Law at Tripoli’s Art House tonight.
Directed by Rachid Bouchareb, the 2010 drama tells the story of three Algerian brothers living in France. Outside the Law is set in France between 1956 and 1962, against the backdrop of Algerian independence. It sparked controversy in France for its “unorthodox portrayal” of the 1945 Sétif massacre in Algeria.
Outside the Law is in French and Arabic with English subtitles.
The film is part of the Arete Cinema Club’s new season of screenings. Cinemas and theatres in Libya were closed for decades and the Arete Cinema Club aims to reintroduce films to the community. Screenings this season will include some of the best of new Arab cinema as well as Hollywood hits and classic European films.
The screening of Outside the Law starts at 5 pm on Thursday 31 October. The Art House is on Al-Sekka Road in Tripoli, near the Prime Minister’s Office. [/restrict]
