The Arab Identity: Who Are the Arabs?. This 1975 educational film about Arab life and culture holds up well today. It shows us lots of things non-Arabs would normally never get to see, such as what a pilgrimage to Mecca is like, and isolated areas on the Lebanese/Israeli border populated only by Palestinian gurerrillas. It also shows the huge contrasts of the Arab world and how they create strife and conflicts, and yet how Arabs also have a lot of unity as a people. A very good educational film that gives a good understanding of the Arabs as a people. Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: N/A. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
