English Podcast „Everything is film“ // Part 3: DFF-Diversity Manager Rabih El-Khoury about Film and the Arabic Language


What actually is “Arabian”, what does “Arab” mean and when do I use “Arabic”? What are we talking about, when we speak of the Arabic language? Does a Moroccan actually understand someone who comes from Lebanon? And what do cinema and music have to do with the Arabic language? Is Arabic spoken at the DFF, do I get information there in Arabic and can I see films from the Arabic-speaking world in the DFF cinema? On the occasion of the World Day of the Arabic language on December 18th 2020, in this podcast Frauke Haß talks about all these questions and much more with DFF-Diversity-Manager, Rabih El-Khoury.
