      BREATH OF POETRY

      art exhibition by Simeen Farhat

      Like birds, my sculptures, too, move in space or perch somewhere. Eloquent words in many languages, by Eastern and Western poets, writers and philosophers, or my own written inspirations.
      My beloved late father, who was quite well versed in Urdu, Farsi and English, and with a fanatic love for Ghalib’s poetry, played a tremendous role in the shaping of my current body of work. Awaiting his migration to the next world during the final years of his life, he would often communicate with his family and friends using verses of poetry from various poets about philosophical questions.
      Join us for the opening at 6 PM, followed by dinner and a jazz performance with the accomplished Franky the Saxophonist, Ronald on Keyboard and Jason on guitar. Simeen and La Fontaine will be donating 20% of the art sales towards the Think Foundation www.thinkinc.me | www.thinkincfoundation.org

          MOVIE NIGHT

          asir

          As Saudi Arabia marches towards modernity it is quickly losing one of the oldest and most vibrant parts of its history and culture. Globalization 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 80’s.
          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. Michael Bou-Nacklie is filmmaker and photographer who works between San Francisco and Bahrain producing work, under his company Fancy Hat Multimedia, for clients including The World Bank, ARAMCO, The Guardian, The AIDS Healthcare foundation, and many more.
