ALWAN CELEBRATES YEMEN
Film Screening and Discussion
Join Alwan for the Arts in celebrating and appreciating the unique and diverse arts and culture of Yemen in a special series that will span over two weeks and will include film screenings with discussions, a book launch on The Silver Treasures from the Land of Sheba, and a concert by the astounding Yemeni-musician Abdulrahman al-Akhfash.
THURSDAY SEPT 25: YEMENI FILMS SCREENINGS
Sheffield Steel, Yemeni Dreams
Emma Vickers & Cathy Soreny, UK, 34 min
This short film tells the story of a generation of men, now entering old age, who migrated from colonial South Yemen to Britain in the 1950s and 1960s to work in Sheffield’s burgeoning steel industry. These men and their families laid the foundations for one of the UK’s strongest immigrant communities.
Khadija al-Salami, Yemen, 2012, 84 min
Yemen’s first female filmmaker looks at the role of women in Yemen’s 2011 uprising, and examines the aftermath of their participation: they hoped for democracy, but what did they ultimately achieve? And more importantly, what are they left with?
Alwan and 3rd i NY would like to thank The Yemen Peace Project for their help in realizing this Special Series.
