The embassy of the UAE to the USA, in partnership with Image Nation Abu Dhabi, invites you to an online celebration of Emirati comedies.
The embassy will screen Emirati comedies and host a panel discussion this January. Each week, a long-feature movie will virtually screen live, at no cost, a full-length comedy from the UAE.
Interested viewers can register in advance to receive the link to the screening. At the end of the month, do not miss a panel discussion with Emirati directors and producers involved in the films.
The programme includes:
- Rashid & Rajab: Wednesday, January 13 @ 7pm EST (Jan. 14th, 4am UAE)
- Khalek Shanab: Wednesday, January 20 @ 7pm EST (Jan. 20th, 4am UAE)
- Shebab Sheyab: Monday, January 25 @ 7pm EST (Jan. 25th, 4am UAE)
- Panel discussion with Directors and Producers: Wednesday, January 27 @ 11am EST – 8pm UAE
Wednesday 13 January
When a freak accident on their way to work causes a wealthy Emirati executive and a carefree Egyptian fast-food deliveryman to switch bodies, the unlikely pair gain a different perspective into each other’s lives as they desperately look for a way to revert to their former selves.
