The journal “Jura Gentium Cinema” is seeking reviews (between 5000 and 10000 words) for the American-Kuwaiti movie "Amreeka" by Cherien Dabis (AKA "Amerrika" (Fr)), winner of the Fipresci Prize at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

Official site of the movie (Fr): http://www.amerrika-lefilm.com/

The review should particularly address the gender and postcolonial dimension of the movie. The review should be informative and evaluative, without being dismissive: that is, the reviewer should find some value in the work being reviewed.

Reviews in French, Spanish, Italian are also welcomed.
