Nisreen Shammout majored in Cultural Studies by picking it out of a hat, not realizing one of its core requirements was Intro to Film. Six years later she has a BA in Cultural and Women’s Studies (McGill), an MA in Cinema Studies (University of Toronto), a passion for film, and a particular interest in cinema and culture, feminist film theory, as well as the construction and representation(s) of gender, sexuality, and the Body in a variety of cinematic genres.
