In collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Film Festival

This year marks the centennial of the birth of Naguib Mahfouz, the most prodigious and influential writer of the modern Middle East. This fall, we celebrate his life by showing a selection of films based on his work. Khan Al Khalili  is a social melodrama adapted from his novel by the same name which marked a turning point for Mahfouz—from the themes of antiquity to writing that focused on the lives of contemporary Egyptians.
