PORTLAND — The Maine College of Art is holding a viewing of the documentary “Infiltrators” from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9 at Osher Hall, 522 Congress Street. 

“Infiltrators” is a visceral “road movie” that chronicles the daily travails of Palestinians of all backgrounds as they seek routes through, under, around, and over a bewildering matrix of barriers.

Following this high stakes “game” of cat and mouse with a handheld video camera, Khaled Jarrarʼs debut documentary was the standout success at the 2012 Dubai International Film Festival, winning the Muhr Arab Documentary Prize, the Special Jury Prize, and the International Critics Prize.

Maine College of Art MFA’19 candidate Inass Yassin will introduce the film, and lead a short discussion after the screening.

This event will take place in MECA’s Osher Hall.
