Stories Never Told is a traveling display curated by local Yemeni American social entrepreneur Hanan Ali Yahya in partnership with AANM. It narrates the artistic renaissance born out of Yemen’s crises via visual art, short films, poetry, writing and productions of Yemeni artists residing in Yemen and the diaspora. Yahya will join AANM’s Dave Serio for a post-screening talkback. All films in Arabic with English subtitles. All donations go to The Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation.
