Educational Film Guide for Middle Eastern Studies.
Greenman, Joseph; Joachim, Ann
This annotated guide lists 16mm. films on the Middle East for use in grades K-12 and with adults. The Middle East refers to a vast area extending from eastern Afghanistan and the northern Caucasus to the western coast of Morocco and the southern periphery of the Sahara. The guide does not list films according to their merits. Rather, it includes all educational movies on the Middle East, regardless of artistic qualities or political perspectives. Films date from the forties through the seventies. Some of the films deal with the history and culture of the Middle Eastern countries. Others deal with the Arab-Israeli conflict, archaeology, art and architecture, deserts, geography, music, oil, religion, water, and women. The information provided in each annotation includes age level, time, price, year, publisher, and a brief description. A subject index and list of distributors are included. (Author/RM)
