FALL PROGRAM

This fall, Warehouse421 is taking you back to your senses with a season full of programs for your eyes, ears and much more! Sink into your body as we bring back our outdoor film program with Cinema Akil, close your eyes as our incense workshop entices your nose, focus on your fingertips as our calligraphy course guides your penmanship, listen in on one of our monthly Khayal story-time sessions, and don’t forget to support your creative community by visiting our CLU market! Whatever you’re looking for this fall, we have a taste, a whiff, or a touch of it here at Warehouse421!

 

The season will inaugurate our newly renovated spaces with two exhibitions: So Different, So Appealing curated by Murtaza Vali; and As We Gaze Upon Her curated by Banat Collective.

Film: Fire Walk with Her: Al Sit  and Lift Like A Girl

This fall, Cinema Akil returns to live film screenings at Warehouse421 presenting a lineup of contemporary Arab films in conversation with the exhibitions in our space. The films will be screened outdoors, once a month, starting in October.

 

FIRE WALK WITH HER

 

Al Sit

In a cotton-farming village in Sudan, 15-year-old Nafisa has a crush on Babiker, but her parents have arranged her marriage to a young Sudanese businessman living abroad and her matriarchal grandmother Al-Sit has her own plans.

Lift Like A Girl

For over 20 years, Captain Ramadan coached world-class weightlifters in Alexandria, Egypt. A larger-than-life character in his own right, Ramadan led his daughter, one of Egypt’s most famous athletes, Nahla Ramadan, to become a world champion, and trained Abeer Abdel Rahman, the first Arab woman to become a two-time Olympic medalist. Mayye Zayed’s observational documentary dives into the training of Ramadan’s new protégé: the determined Zebiba (which means “raisin”), who dreams of lifting on the level of Captain’s past stars. Shot over four years, starting when Zebiba is 14 years old, Lift Like a Girl is an intimate journey into the inner life of an aspiring athlete.
