Yemen: a time for the sacred
A documentary directed by Layth Abdulamir.
Why make a film on Yemen? First, you must realize that Southern Arabia is simultaneously legend and reality. This is what the writer André Malraux meant when he spoke of Southern Arabia as the “lingering poetry of extinct dreams”. “Yemen, a time for the sacred” shows that dreams of grandeur have fallen to dust, but that a rich and ageless vision lingers on… Here, reality has separated itself from the passage of time, mirages appear not only in the desert, but also in mountain strongholds and bustling cities. This film opens a door to history, and its actors merely play their real roles in life.
