I have had several patron requests for foreign videos in Arabic. (No
particular titles). We have a small foreign language video collection with
Italian, French, German videos. I would like to purchase 3 or 4 movies in
Arabic language, with English subtitle.

I am not familiar with titles of any that might have appeal in their own
right. I have found mention of the following:

Palace Walk (adaptation of the novel by Mahfuz); YOL (from 1982) won Palme
d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival; The Victor--Salah al-Din (by Yusuf
Shahin) ; Wedding in Galilee; Islam in America .

I would deeply appreciate any comments or suggestions --either resources or
