"ONE ARABIAN NIGHT" Film & Amir Kheir live band

Filmic 2013: Amira Kheir Live Score for Sumurun (One Arabian Night) (CTBA)

Dir: Ernst LubitschCast: Ernst Lubitsch, Pola Negri85 mins, 1920, Germany Sun 14 April 18:00

Birds Eye View presents...

Italian-Sudanese singer/songwriter Amira Kheir presents a brand new live rescore of Ernst Lubitsch's brilliant adventure One Arabian Night (also called Sumurun). In what turned out to be his last on-camera appearance, Lubitsch stars as Yeggar, a hunchbacked clown who works with a travelling carnival. A lecherous sheik wants the troupe's dancing girl (the iconic Pola Negri) for his own, however, and demands she join his harem, causing much jealousy for his son, and Yeggar, who faithfully follows along. With so many men chasing after one woman, things cannot end well...

Kheir's fusion of Western jazz and folk with traditional Sudanese music is a perfect counterpoint to Lubitsch's ornate film, and she will be performing with a small band, including guests on oud and nay.

    Really enjoyed this "vintage" cinematic experience enhanced by the live performance of Amira Kheire and her band - and lovely to get together afterwards for a chat. The Watershed is certainly one of the best locations, too. Looking forward to the next adventure!

    If your interested, I think you may need to move fast on this one, as
    I think it will be a sell out...

    One woman in the band, will be playing an oud !

    (As a big plus tickets will still be only £8 and £6.50 for seniors)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
