The Department of Classical Studies is excited to present a film series in March 2020 exploring Greek tragedy and the experience of contemporary women in the Middle East and South Central Asia.

The first two films, “We are not Princesses” and “Queens of Syria” depict performances of Sophocles’ Antigone and Euripides’ Trojan Women by Syrian women in exile in Lebanon and Jordan, respectively. The third film, “Playing with Fire: Women Actors in Afghanistan” examines the dangers facing Afghan women who want to perform in the theater, specifically as they learn about ancient Greek tragedy.

The films will be shown on March 17, March 24, and March 31st, 2020 at 7 pm in the Hussey Room, Michigan League.

We are grateful to the following Departments and Programs for their support: Classical Studies, Modern Greek, History of Art, Theater and Dance, the Residential College, Film, Television and Media.
