event Details

Award-winning documentary, Asir: Sand in an Hourglass, will be screened. As Saudi Arabia marches towards modernity, it’s quickly losing one of the oldest and most vibrant parts of its history and culture. Globalisation has slowly exerted its pull on the 100-year-old country and the tribal communities in the southwest have paid the price, with many towns becoming almost devoid of anyone not in their late 80s. This documentary looks at what could happen in the next 20 years from the point of view of people trying to conserve their own culture in Asir. It is directed by Michael Bou-Nacklie, who will introduce his film at 7pm. Priced at BD10+, the ticket’s value can be used as credit at the restaurant on the same evening. Read about Michael’s passion for storytelling in our interview section. \
