Jack Josephson and Magda Saleh at home near Congdons Creek. Ms. Saleh will discuss her film ‘Egypt Dances’ at the next Friday Night Dialogues.

The film “Egypt Dances,” described by its creator, Shelter Island’s Magda Saleh, as a “time capsule,” will be presented Friday, June 21 at 7 p.m. as part of the ongoing Friday Night Dialogues series at the Library. The film, a unique blending of dance, music and song with live narration by Saleh, is a feature-length ethnographic documentation of the wealth of Egypt’s dance traditions.
