New York University will host a screening of the award-winning documentary, “Before the Spring, After the Fall,” which chronicles tumultuous events surrounding the 2011 revolution in Egypt, on Fri., Nov. 8, 7 p.m. at NYU’s Cantor Film Center (36 East 8th Street/between University Place and Greene Street).

The event, sponsored by the Hagop Kevorkian Center for Middle Eastern Studies at NYU, is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 212.998.8877 or email kevorkian.center@nyu.edu. Subways: N, R (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place).

“Before the Spring After the Fall” (BTSATF), by Academy Award-nominated director Jed Rothstein, captures the story of what happened before, during, and since the historic events in Egypt during the winter of 2011. Following the fortunes of one family at the center of Egypt’s political life—father Ayman Nour was the only person ever to challenge Hosni Mubarak for the presidency—“BTSATF” gives viewers an inside look at the frustrations that led to the uprising and the challenges that those working for change in Egypt continue to face. Set to the rebellious heavy metal music performed by its main characters, “BTSATF” takes viewers from a battle that began as a fight for the freedom of expression in 2008 to the larger struggle for the future of the Middle East.

Rothstein and Producer Mark LeVine, GSAS '99, who authored Heavy Metal Islam: Rock, Resistance and the Struggle for the Soul of Islam, the book on which the film is based, will be in attendance for a Q&A following the film.

“BTSATF” (72 mins.) was produced in Egypt and the U.S. and is in Arabic and English, with English subtitles.
