The Pitzer community is invited to a screening of Wajib (“Duty”), an award-winning 2018 film directed by Pitzer alum Annemarie Jacir ’96. Wajib was a New York Times Critic’s Pick and won numerous awards at international film festivals. The screening will be followed with a Q&A via Zoom with Jacir.
This is a hybrid event.
