Disco Iskandar Presents BELLY DANCE IN CINEMA at Alamo Drafthouse

Disco Iskandar takes you on a journey into the vast and fabulous world of belly dance in international cinema: a world full of shimmies, espionage, bubble-blowing, cats, guns, glitter, and more. Dedicated to the long history of Arab dance as a prominent feature of Middle Eastern and international filmmaking, with plenty of participation from filmmakers in the West, Disco Iskandar's BELLY DANCE IN CINEMA is an ode to the fun, silly, dramatic, sexy, and joyful performances of dancers in movies from the 1940's through the 1970's. We visit films from Egypt, Turkey, Italy, Iran, America, and more, inside Alamo Drafthouse DTLA's Video Vortex event space & bar.
