Aditi Belame Kumar: Humr Al Na’am, Treasure of the Desert

Friday 1 March, 2pm-3pm

Screen 18, Novo Cinemas, DFC

Humr An-Na'am –Arabic for the finest camel – reclaims the desert’s forgotten and neglected titan. Despite thousands of years of loyal service to desert dwellers, the animal has suffered as the map of the Arabian Peninsula became dotted with cities and automobiles the preferred mode of transportation. But thanks to the leadership and initiative of the late His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, camels have finally been restored to their position at the heart of the United Arab Emirates’ ethnographic and historical identity.

Aditi Belame Kumar explores the growth of the camel industry, particularly camel racing, which has preserved the sacred status of the animal.
