A very special event: Conference honoring filmmaker and professor Elizabeth Fernea

Icarus Films is proud to announce a conference organized by the University of Texas Austin in honor of the late professor Elizabeth "BJ" Fernea.

Fernea was a leading scholar, author and filmmaker whose work focused on Women's Issues in the Middle East. Her memoir “Guests of the Sheik: An Ethnography of an Iraqi Village” (1965) which detailed her immersion into the lives of the women of Al-Nahra, was a national bestseller.

The conference will take place from October 15 to 17 and is free and open to the public. Click here for more details and a list of speakers, and click here to download the information poster.
