Sponsored by the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) at Georgetown University and the Yemen Cultural Institute for Heritage and the Arts (YCIHA).
The CCAS and YCIHA invite you to the American premiere of “The Bronze Man” (25 min.) by award-winning filmmaker Khadija Al-Salami. The film documents the journey of an ancient Yemeni bronze sculpture that was restored in France and returned to Yemen.
Following the screening, we will host an expert discussion and Q&A on the current state of Yemen’s endangered heritage with Dr. Michele Lamprakos, Associate Professor at the University of Maryland-College Park, and Dr. Alexander Nagel, Assistant Professor at the State University of New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Join us and learn about Yemen’s living heritage, the threats it faces, and prospects for the future.
