There are three major interventions in director Robert O’Hara’s take on Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, which just opened at the Public Theatre following its Williamstown premiere in 2019.

All footage of “the Arab world” was shot with an ugly, yellowed lens and all media surrounding it was either grossly propagandistic or, on the other side, pretty corny in its attempt to humanize the people. (Same thing happened with Mexico and the cartel-border of it all, but that’s another story).
