Still from Selves and Others (2003)

Selves and Others: a Portrait of Edward Said—a Screening and Panel Discussion

Film Forum
209 West Houston Street
New York, NY 10014

In 2002, a French film crew spent several weeks with Edward Said and his family. The result is Selves and Others, an intimate documentary that offers a glimpse at Said’s thought and daily life—and the interconnections between the two. On Friday, September 22nd, BISR and Film Forum will present a special screening, to be followed by a panel discussion featuring BISR’s Suzanne Schneider and guests Tareq Baconi and Moustafa Bayoumi. How, 24 years after the publication of Orientalism, did Said think about his work and legacy—and how, 20 years after his untimely death, do we continue to think with Said today?
