The English Sheikh & The Yemeni Gentleman [Archives:2001/03/Local News]

January 15 2001

In a unique attempt, Yemeni film director Ben Hirsi presents his film The English Sheikh & the Yemeni Gentleman. This lyrical documentary follows London-born Badr Ben Hirsi as he discovers his ancestral home under the guiding hand of the eccentric Tim Mackintosh Smith, who has been living in the ancient Yemeni city of Sanaa for 16 years.
This moving yet amusing documentary is exquisitely filmed by award-winning cinematographer Koutaiba Al-Janabi.
The film will be on display at the British Council, Al- Jazair street on the 20th of January. For more information contact the BLC – 215000.
