From Yemen – من اليمن

  • 37 mins

Despite the country’s precarious political and economic situation, Yemeni filmmakers are still working hard to get their voices heard and express themselves, their struggles, and their ambitions through art and filmmaking. This collection includes films (documentary and fiction) made by Yemenis.

بالرغم من الوضع السياسي والاقتصادي الغير مستقر في البلاد، ما يزال صناع الأفلام اليمنيين يعملون بجد على ايصال اصواتهم والتعبير عن انفسهم، معاناتهم، وطموحاتهم عن طريق الفن و صناعة الافلام. تضم هذه المجموعة افلام ( وثائقية – روائية ) قادمة من حكايات اليمنيين وقصة اليمن.
