This Academy Award-nominated film is Shakespearean in its scope and themes — revenge, loyalty, hope, and despair. Ajami draws us into the lives of two brothers fearing assassination; a young refugee working illegally to cover his mother’s medical expenses; a cop obsessed with finding his missing brother. Through this dramatic collision of different worlds, we witness political, social, and cultural tensions simmering beneath the surface and the tragic consequences of enemies living as neighbors.

This event is open to the public. Advance registration is required, please visit The NYUAD Arts Center website for more ticket information.
