The Seventh Art Stand

May 27-June 7, 2017 • Full event lineup below

The Seventh Art Stand is a nationwide series of films presented by movie theaters and community centers across the U.S. as an act of cinematic solidarity against Islamophobia and anti-Muslim discrimination. The Network of Arab Alternative Screens (NAAS) joins U.S. theaters in this coalitional effort to showcase films from the countries affected by the travel ban and to elevate the stories of our friends and filmmakers abroad.

In conjunction with the film series, the museum will offer tours of its Islamic gallery and special exhibition Shahzia Sikander: Parallax after matinee screenings. 

The short film Letters From Camp, directed by Frank Chi and the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, will precede all film screenings.
