Cinema Akil - Here Comes the Sun film screenings in July

Last month saw the launch of Cinema Akil's "Here Comes the Sun"

film screening  in the 

Cinema Room in A4 Space at Alserkal Avenue

 which will run till 28th August 2015.

The series showcases stories and narratives that grapple with concepts relating to sunlight, sunshine and the sun in its many manifestations, featuring films from around the world that span a universe of cinematic styles, directors and genres, including romance, sci-fi, drama and comedy.  
Presented at a time when The Sun takes full command over the city, Here Comes The Sun invites audiences to escape the heat and tuck themselves away into the Alserkal Avenue A4 screening room, a shelter of sorts for a cinematic confrontation with The Sun, our chosen protagonist for the summer.
