The meeting will feature a showing of Professor Vitaly Naumkin's documentary programme about the Russian film-maker Vladimir Schneiderov's visit to the Kingdom of Yemen in 1929, preceded by a short introductory talk. The documentary features fascinating early footage of a Yemen that was almost entirely inaccessible. The documentary is in Arabic, but the introduction and some English language subtitling should make it accessible to all.
Refreshments will be available. Members: £5; Non-members: £10.
