London International Documentary Film Festival 
Saturday, 5 April 2008, 15:55�16:57
British Museum , Stevenson Theatre, Great Russell Street London WC1B 3DG (nearest tube Tottenham Court Rd)
The film festival offers an array of excellent films, full programme here.  (Admission �3.00) Of special interest are �Four Short Films� being shown back to back:

Hiding Place (Director: Sarvenaz Ghazanfar, 2006 , UK , 8min) 
The director, a Persian Canadian, grew up in Iran during the country�s war with Iraq . 19 years after she left, she goes back to interview her childhood friends and share memories of growing up in a war zone.
Hammoudi (Director: Anwar Saab, 2007 , Lebanon , 10min)
Mo hammad is a young boy who was badly injured by one of the thousands of cluster bombs that now litter Lebanon . He lost both his legs in the blast, but now fights, with amazing good humour, to live the life of a normal young boy.
Beirut
: All Flights Cancelled (Director: Katia Saleh , 2006 , UK , 22min)
During the stifling summer of 2006, Beirut-born film maker Katia Saleh documented the month-long war between Israel and Hezbollah that left ordinary Lebanese families in a state of chaos, fleeing their homes for shelter in overcrowded schools and hospitals. Meanwhile, those who still had electricity were receiving graphic email images of the victims � all deemed too shocking to be broadcast at the time. Amid the chaos, the director and her mother face the difficult choice of whether to stay in the country or try to get a precious foreign visa and leave.
Tunnel Trade (Director: Laila El-Haddad, Saeed Taji Farouky, 2007, Palestine/UK, 22min)
Tunnel Trade is an exclusive look at Gaza �s smuggling economy � from the perspective of the people who run it. Filmed in May 2007 during some of the Gaza Strip�s most intense fighting, it explores how a handful of individuals from Rafah have gone underground to achieve illicitly what politics otherwise makes impossible.

New British landscape: An new exhibition in London directed by Osama Jalili

New British Landscape
Curated by osama Jalili
New British Landscapes places work from emerging and established artists together. The differing ways in which each has dealt with issues of context and environment provide points of discussion. The exhibition contains paintings, photography, drawing and sculpture. New British Landscapes continues the Takecourage Gallery approach of providing an open and free platform for artists and curators to explore ideas.

Accompanying the exhibition is New British Landscape - essays and additional Material. The short booklet of written responses consists of condensed tracts exploring concerns of context and the representation of landscape, presented as prose, poetry and philosophy, with contributors drawn from many levels and disciplines and online.

New British Landscapes - essays and Additional Material will be available at the exhibition and online.

Sami Jalili is Director of Exhibitions at London's premise27, and continues to draw upon his postgraduate academic background in philosophy, politics and art theory in his writing and curating.

Parallax Media: Institut Francais & Leighton House Museum - received from Arab Media Watch
Subject: Al- Khitab � Tala Tutunji and Habiboun- Houria Niati in 'A Journey to a Destination of Unknown Splendour:from Andalusian to Modern Times '
Time: 7.00 for 7.30pm
Venue: Leighton House Museum - No. 12 Holland Park Rd London W14 8LZ
(performance to end at 9.00pm followed by a reception)
Remarks: Starting with the Moorish musical achievements of Al-Andalus; a selection of songs
attributed to the great ninth century composer Ziryab Ibn Nafi followed by the Cantigas De Santa Maria attributed to King Alfonso the X El Sabio. Taking the audience through a silk road of fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth century Arabic compositions. Finally, residing in the diverse Contemporary compositions by renowned composers including Bushra El -Turk, Tarek Younis and Elia Khoury. 
Al -Khitab and Habiboun perform internationally for the purpose of increasing awareness and appreciation for Arabic music and heritage. This is achieved by blending the Arabic voice, violin with the Western guitar, piano, and percussion. The intense melodic energy coming from the Arabic vocal line and instruments is contrasted by the rhythmic energy from the piano, guitar and percussion.
In our previous musical concert 'AL HURREIH- FREEDOM' we had promised you beauty, outstanding talent and sheer enchantment. The testimony of those who attended confirms that we had indeed delivered. (examples of their feedback is attached). Perhaps the most poignant moment was the call on the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) which echoed a young Muslim woman's voice, answering a call on Santa Maria by an opera male vocalist. It had a magical impact within the serenity of a beautiful church lit by hundreds of flickering candles, declaring no limits to excellence and no monopoly on genius and talents.
At a time when anti Arab/Muslim sentiments are being ruthlessly fed and fanned, portraying a cultural image is crucial, not only in defence of our culture, but mainly to work on pacifying extremism in the societies we live in, as well as within our own communities. This can best be achieved by supporting objective rational approaches to tackle these dangerous trends that are threatening our very existence. 
Our musical concert comes as a finale to 'Women's Cinema from Tangiers to Tehran Film Festival' in which Arab Media Watch is also actively organizing with the above institutions and others. The festival will start on Friday 22nd and ends on Thursday the 28th of February 2008. the full programme is enclosed & early booking advised.
This is a unique festival of award winning films from Morocco to Iran by female directors, with special Previews of CARAMEL (Nadin Labaki) and PERSEPOLIS (Marjane Satrapi), with the voices of Chiara Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve. Premiere screenings will be held of the film 'Cut and Paste' (Hala Khalil) featuring actress HananTurk, and many others. A special concert and talk with the singer-songwriter Souad Massi and director Yamina Benguigi. A Film Symposium will also be held. Attached is the programme in full to help you choose and book the events you would like to attend. You can also view the programme on our web at
