“KARAMA HAS NO WALLS”: One of the two films screened in Wolfensohn Hall on the Institute for Advanced Study campus, “Karama Has No Walls” is set amidst Yemen’s 2011 uprising. The film illustrates the nature of the Yemeni revolution in stark contrast to the violations of human rights that took place on Friday, March 18, 2011. Juma’at El-Karama (Friday of Dignity) marks a turning point in the Yemeni revolution as the killing of 53 protestors shook the nation and propelled hundreds of thousands more to flock to the square in solidarity with their fellow citizens.
The Institute for Advanced Study continues its film series, “From the Banned Countries: a Film Series” curated by the School of Social Science and the School of Historical Studies with the screening of two Yemeni films from award winning Canadian/Yemeni filmmaker Sara Ishaq. The screenings will take place on Wednesday, December 13, starting at 4 p.m. in Wolfensohn Hall on the Institute for Advanced Study campus. more
