Mohannad Ghawanmeh

My name is Mohannad Ghawanmeh—film scholar and cineaste. I have produced, acted in, curated for, written about, and lectured on film. My expertise is centered on Arab cinema, but thoroughly extends into silent cinema, non-fiction cinema, transnational cinema, religious cinema, and more. I am a PhD candidate in Cinema and Media Studies in the University of California, Los Angeles. I am also a 2017–18 fellow in the American Research Center in Egypt. My dissertation investigates the political economy of silent cinema in Egypt, 1896–1932.
