At the top of this website’s main page, you should see “Casavie Bienvenue,” and “bienvenue” means “welcome” in French. 

 

Films

 

Under “Casavie Bienvenue” you should see the words “Top Films.”  Click on the title of the film under that if that particular film sees interesting to you.  As of May 2008, the film in this spot is “Al Horob Min Khanika,” or الهروب من الخانكة.  The French description provided roughly translates to read: Fouad killed television journalist Mustapha for stealing his land.  However, before dying, Mustapha had already warned Nachwa, Fouad’s sister.  She goes to the police to bring a charge against her brother.  He pretends he is insane and is taken to a mental institution so that the court cannot take her testimony into account.  The film also deals with the problem of torturing sick people in mental institutions.

 

You may have to download Adobe Acrobat Reader (for free) in order to view the film.  Instructions should be provided when you try to download the film.  To see Part 1, click on “partie 1.”  To see Part 2, click on “partie 2.”

 

You can click on other film titles to see other films, located under the first film at the top of the screen.  You can go to a new page to see more films by clicking on a page number at the bottom of the screen.

For music from the Maghreb (Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco): Click on “Musique du Maghreb Arabe,” which means “Music from the Arab Maghreb” in French.  You can also click on موسيقى المغرب العربي.  These links, as you probably can already see for yourself, are at the top left and right sides of the screen.  After clicking there, you should see many icons with images of singers.  Click on whichever icon you like to play the songs and videos of that artist.  If you see a video screen on the page with a big right arrow on it, you can press that to start playing the artist’s music.  On other pages, the artist’s music will begin playing automatically.  You may need to download Real Player to be able to listen to songs when you click on the links under the screen/box in the middle of the artist’s page.  Some of the links work and others don’t. 

 

For music from other Arab countries (that aren’t in the Gulf or the Maghreb): Click on “Musique Orientale” or الموسيقى الشرقي.  These two links are below the links for music from the Maghreb.  Follow the same steps outlines above to access music from this part of the region.
