Sabeel Center is proud to present its Family Movie & Discussion Night series for 2019.
One of the Center’s strategic objective is to bring the community together. To that end, we encourage our audiences to join us every 3rd Friday of a month with members of their families for a lively and meaningful discussion across generations.
Discussion materials will be emailed to registered attendees to enhance their viewing experience at the event and also prepare them for the discussion.
Please see below the event details, the program agenda, and links to other evenings in the series.
Sabeel Center is thankful to Alchemiya (wwww.alchemiya.com) for making this documentary available to us for the benefit of our community.
Description : (from the Alchemiya website)
This is the story of a calligraphic script that is almost extinct, yet which was once a crucial part of the most extraordinary cultural flourishing of the Middle Ages. We trace its journey from its origins in Madinah to its pinnacle in Al-Andalus, where we look at the rich context it evolved in. How did this once ubiquitous style fall into disuse, and what remains of it today?
