Global Glimpses- Omar at National Geographic with reception after

For at least the 5th year in a row, National Geographic is showing the 5 Oscar-nominated foreign films, all with receptions either before or after, over the Presidents Day Holiday. It has been an ArtHouse tradition in the past so we'll continue with a few of these.

Omar has not played locally so this will be most people's first opportunity to see it. A young Palestinian baker-turned-militant falls into a cat-and-mouse game with Israeli military police, in award-winning filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad’s powerful drama. This has received some very favorable reviews.

TICKETS: These all do sell out eventually. Each film is just $10 including the reception. Here is the link to the main website.  For this meetup click on Omar and follow the prompts. I do not see a deal for all 5 this year.

The film starts at 5:00, the reception probably around 6:30. It does get very crowded.  Some of us will be going to The Hunt after the reception.

    Have you seen or plan to see “Omar"? This movie will make you question some of your beliefs. Join me to seek clarity, share your thoughts and feelings. Listen with an open mind and speak from the heart. The Peace Committee of Langley Hill Friends Meeting, has organized a thought provoking dialogue on Mar 9 at 3pm at Langley Hill Friends Meeting, 6410 Old Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA. See the movie in a local theater and come on by for a truly touching experience

    Omar was an excellent choice, a very moving movie that could have led to very interesting conversations. I wish we had had a discussion after the movie instead of a reception

      Agree. Both good movies. Missed the group however during the reception. Nice event

    The movie was an excellent choice, very powerful but very disturbing too. The reception was nice but it was difficult to find the meet up members.

    See everyone later. My number to text is 703.338.7494. Did anyone go last night and know what they served at reception. I read just desserts and drinks. So if you're doing both today, eat a good lunch.

    Hi, I got the last ticket for Omar through the National Geographic site. I have RSVP'd for two (one guest) so if anyone wants to sell a ticket to Omar let me know. I will be staying for the reception and then my friend and I will see "The Hunt."

    February 10, 2014

  • Rozanne

    Realized I saw this film – it's fabulous and I highly recommend it. So I just changed my last minute RSVP to no

    February 10, 2014

  • Rozanne

    Delighted to be going. I'll buy a ticket to Omar.

    Ronn I realized I saw the Hunt--it's fabulous – and I haven't been able to change my RSVP for that film to no.

    February 10, 2014

  • Ronn

    Just a reminder that these do typically sell out if you have not bought a ticket yet.

    February 3, 2014

    • LaVerne

    This will be my first meetup and looking forward to meeting everyone. I live in Centreville. Is it better to metro or is there parking? Thanks.

    February 2, 2014

    • Ronn

      They do have free parking underneath and since this is first show of the day, that should be pretty easy.

      February 3, 2014

  • Sarah S.

    Looking forward to the move
