520    Ten Arab Filmmakers provides an up-to-date overview of the
       best of Arab cinema, offering studies of leading directors
       and in-depth analyses of their most important films. The 
       filmmakers profiled here represent principal national 
       cinemas of the Arab world--Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, 
       Morocco, Palestine, and Syria. Although they have produced
       many of the region's most-renowned films and gained 
       recognition at major international festivals, with few 
       exceptions these filmmakers have received little critical 
       attention. All ten share a concern with giving image and 
       voice to people struggling against authoritarian regimes, 
       patriarchal traditions, or religious fundamentalism--
       theirs is a cinéma engagé. The featured directors are 
       Daoud Abd El-Sayed, Merzak Allouache, Nabil Ayouch, 
       Youssef Chahine, Mohamed Chouikh, Michel Khleifi, Nabil 
       Maleh, Yousry Nasrallah, Jocelyne Saab, and Elia Suleiman.
