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 ( for making this documentary available to us for the benefit of our community.

Description : (from the Alchemiya website)
Salaam Dunk follows the American University of Iraq women’s basketball team as they discover what it means to be students, athletes, and friends, a story of triumph in the face of chaos and a testament to perseverance. It shows us how sports can help build bridges of shared values and potentially lead us toward a future of understanding within Iraq as well as abroad. Above all, Salaam Dunk is a film about basketball, friendship and the pain of losing those we love. ”
