One of those who has earned the CMES Certificate in Middle Eastern Studies is Ari Sandel. Ari went on to win an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film in 2007 for his film West Bank Story. He was kind enough to agree to host a virtual screening of this film during the COVID-19 pandemic in February 2021. Thank you, again, Ari!
