Screening of Nadia Kamel's film Salata Baladi (An Egyptian Salad)
Award-winning Egyptian filmmaker Nadia Kamel's heritage is a complex blend of religions and cultures. Her
mother is a half-Jewish, half-Italian Christian who converted to Islam when she married Nadia's half-Turkish,
half-Ukrainian father. Prompted by the realization that her 10-year-old nephew Nabeel is growing up in an
Egyptian society where talk of culture clashes is all too common, she urges her feminist, pacifist, activist mother,
Mary Rosenthal, to share their diverse family history.
