SAVE THE DATE: Community Gathering "Film Night for Everyone"

Join us for the RAKFAF Film Grant Screening of “Aminah” by Rebecca Beamer and “Grain of Sand” by Jason Carter.​

"Aminah" is a dialog between a poet, a critic, and an Emirate. It is an experimental biography of poet Ahmad Al Assam, who has lived his entire life in Ras Al Khaimah. Ride along with Ahmad as he shares the intimate spaces around Ras Al Khaimah that have inspired his discourse on family, loss, love, and country. The environment, culture, and people are the catalysts for his poems that depict a greater narrative on the inevitable: change. Ahmad shares his stories in verse and prose. View Ras Al Khaimah from the sky, hear the words that are echoed in the sea, and feel the passion of critic, Dr. Haitham Yehia Al-Khawajah, who refused to give up on the importance of poetry to Ras Al Khaimah and to the region. ​

"Grain of Sand" is a documentary about the music and heritage of Bahraini pearl divers through the eyes of British Musician Jason Carter. Follow Jason as he ventures into the cultural heart of Bahrain, exploring music as a platform for intercultural dialogue. Grain of Sand is an effort to shed light on the dying music of the pearl divers and it asks poignant questions about identity, culture, and heritage in a region that has experienced development at a pace previously deemed impossible.

More details about the event will be provided soon.
