The Saladin Days 2014 Film screening. Introduction by Kristian Takvam Kindt

The film Al-Massir tells the story of the Andalusian philosopher and scientist Ibn Rushd – in Europe better known as Averroës – the man who brought Aristotelian philosophy to Europe and laid the foundation for secularist thought. When Rushd is appointed as a judge by the caliph it enrages both the ignorant and fanatics. The film’s director, Youssef Chahine, is among the foremost in the Arab world. Before the screening Kristian Takvam Kindt, research scholar and director of the Arabic Film days, will give an introduction to Chahine and Averroës. The film is in Arabic, with English subtitles (orig. title: Al-Massir, 1997, 135 mins., dir: Youssef Chahine, 2013).

Free tickets for the film screening will be handed out from 18.30.
