Why did you join the ArtHouse?

I am interested in foreign movies. I grew up in Lebanon where Arabic, French, British and American movies were shown regularly in local theaters. I am also interested in learning about art, having appreciated it throughout my life but really knowing nothing about it.

What are some of your favorite films or genres?

Films that depict real lives, deal with people's emotions. Non-violent, non-action. Ones that lift my spirits or inspire me to do something when I leave the movie theater. I will gladly see any movie that stars Merryl Streep, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, or Robin Williams. I also love foreign movies that depict other cultures accurately.

What types of cultural events are you hoping to see and do with this meetup?

Foreign movies, museum tours (I know a great docent at the National Art Gallery who will give us tours), movie discussions


I've had a rich life as an IT professional, a mother, a caregiver to my elderly parents, a friend, an activist. I lived abroad the last 5 years and am now resettling in the Northern VA area, doing things that interest me and meeting new people.

What najla is saying about this Meetup Group

I don't know because I could not connect with the organizer and could not tell who was with the meet up. I did meet Janet who tried her best to introduce me to Ronn but unfortunately we could not find him in the sea of people that were at the reception. Next time maybe!
