An annual festival of movies from the Middle East is screening films rarely seen in the United States.

The Arab American National Museum in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn is hosting the 2013 festival that runs from Jan 24-26.

The schedule includes "1/2 Revolution," a personal look at a group of friends living in Cairo during the first days of the Egyptian uprisings that were part of the Arab Spring.

Other films include tales from Lebanon, the West Bank and Gaza, Morocco and Jordan.

All screenings take place in the museum's auditorium. Tickets are available in advance online or at the door.
