The Queer Immigrant Documentary ‘Abu’ Offers Cinema as Self-Portrait [New York Indian Film Festival]

Filmmakers are adept at the art of disguise, especially when it comes to their own stories. Sometimes it merely involves a change in name and location – Richard Linklater’s Before Trilogy is premised on the director’s real-world romantic encounter – though sometimes it involves experiences being filtered through a lens of genre. Loneliness tone-poems Lost in Translation (Sofia Coppola) and Her (Spike Jonze), for instance, arguably reveal themselves to be companion pieces on the duo’s failed mar...

But we must still do all we can to make Assad feel the heatThrough a quirk of fate, I was on a bus travelling from Beirut to Damascus on the day that the US, Britain and France launched airstrikes on Syria. The group I joined was on a pastoral visit arranged months earlier, at the invitation of the Syriac Orthodox church, to offer support and solidarity to Syria’s Christians. A circular email had arrived soliciting participants in early March. As my...

I am not sure whether the advocates of this notice really understand the purpose of counselling or what the role of the imam should be in the community.

The best part of Google's conference was a teen who taught himself to code to diagnose cancer

One of Silicon Valley's fundamental beliefs is that everyone in tech is working on something that could change the world. In truth, most of the 2 million apps in the app store do no such thing. But every so often a curious kid will sit down, study up on some new technology and create something mind-blowing. The latest example: a high-school kid named Abu. He created an app that uses machine learning to diagnose breast cancer from mammograms.  Abu and his family are immigrants from war-torn Afgha...
