 June 19th: "Tamr Henna" film viewing

This 1957 black-and-white musical drama features many stars from the Egyptian Golden Age of cinema, a classic soundtrack by pillar of Arabic music, Mohammed Abdel Wahab, and most importantly, dancing from Bellydance legend Naima Akef as the titular Tamr Henna! This movie is about a man who falls in love with a girl from the wrong side of the tracks: a Ghawazee dancer! Will his attempt to transform her into a respectable lady pay off? What will her family and friends do when confronted with Tamr Henna missing? Join us for free and find out!
