Al Dar: A Night of Yemeni Shorts 18

Various, Yemen, 2022, 60m.

The screening will be introduced by Asma Ibrahim and there will be a chance to discuss the films in the bar afterwards.

Al Yamaniah and Yemen Art Base have teamed up to present 'Al Dar: Short Films from Yemen'. Al Dar means ‘home’ in Arabic, and all the selected films engage with the theme of home in some way.

As part of this project, the selected short films are being screened in London, Aden, Amman, NYC, Detroit and other locations to be confirmed.

The aim of the project is to provide a chance for Yemeni filmmakers to showcase their work abroad, to allow foreign audiences to engage with Yemeni storytelling, and to complement the creation of Al Yamaniah’s Al Dar magazine.

Al Yamaniah is a digital platform celebrating the work of female creatives with Yemeni heritage.


Yemen Art Base is a cultural institution in Yemen supporting artists to showcase their work both locally and internationally.

You can follow the project via @al.yamaniah and @yemenartbase.
