Tea
November 17th, 2010
4:45pm-7pm
Xavier Chapel, Fromm Hall
University of San Francisco, 660 Parker Ave, San Francisco, CA 94117


"Tea on the Axis of Evil" provides an intimate portrait of daily life in Syria through interviews with people from different parts of the religious and political spectrum. A panel discussion with Jean Marie Offenbacher, Aysha Hidayatullah, Annick T.R. Wibben, and Stephen Zunes following the film will explore whether the documentary managed to achieve its goal of promoting greater understanding between the U.S. and Syria, and if any film can foster this kind of awareness.

Free and open to the public
