    Amr Gamal: A Love Story for a Beloved City

    Amr Gamal: A Love Story for a Beloved City

    Independent Yemeni film and theatre director Amr Gamal returns to the podcast to share more about his work and love for Aden. He talks about the power of comedy, and says, “When you mix tragedy with comedy it’s easier to swallow.” Amr also shares how, as he’s taken his work out of the country, he’s learned that, “People everywhere can understand your art if it’s from your heart.” He speaks candidly about his devotion to the city of Aden and his commitment to do whatever he can to give Aden the justice she deserves. Amr urges Yemenis living abroad, “Go see the world and come back. We need Yemenis to come back and re-build this country. If we all leave, who will stay and who will give justice to Yemen?”

    Amr Gamal: Making Movies for the Yemeni People

    Amr Gamal: Making Movies for the Yemeni People

    After nearly all the theaters, cinemas, and stages in Aden were either shut down or destroyed following Yemen’s civil war that ended in 1994, Amr Gamal went on to become an independent Yemeni film and theatre director. He wrote and directed 10 theatre productions between 2005 and 2014 and his play Maak Nazel became the first Yemeni production to be performed in Europe. In 2018, Amr produced his first feature film, 10 Days Before the Wedding. The film premiered in Aden during the summer of 2018 and was screened there for over eight months. The actors who agreed to work on the film, despite the risks and the low budget, told Amr, “It’s better to die out doing something than to die at home doing nothing.” Amr and his team exemplify the spirit of Yemeni resilience – they recognize they have only one life to live and they are fighting every day to make it count.

    Yemenis Rising Up to Overcome Struggle

    Yemenis Rising Up to Overcome Struggle

    Alex Williams, host of Yemen News, joins Affan Syed’s podcast to continue bringing awareness about the Yemen crisis to a global audience. He describes the multiple disease outbreaks that Yemen has faced since the outbreak of the war and continues to celebrate Yemeni resilience. Alex says the real story of Yemen is the story of Yemenis who continue rising up day after day in the face of struggle. While wealthy countries continue fomenting hostility in one of the world’s poorest countries, and use it for their battleground, Alex and his host urge listeners to use any platform they can to turn a spotlight on stories of Yemeni overcomers.

    Alex Williams on Yemeni Resilience

    Alex Williams on Yemeni Resilience

    Alex Williams, host of Yemen News, talks more about different factions taking advantage of the war in Yemen and asks us to consider where all the weapons being sold to the warring parties really end up. He also describes Yemen’s tribal society as well as the impact of the war on tribal values and continues the theme of Yemeni resilience, saying, “Yemenis can’t be defeated because they have nothing to lose.” Alex and his hosts urge listeners not to take a political side, but to take a “pro-life” stance by bringing up Yemen within their circles of influence and calling for urgent pressure to end the Yemen war.

    Alex Williams on the Yemen Crisis

    Alex Williams, host of Yemen News, takes a turn answering the questions as he breaks down the impact of war, cholera, and COVID-19 on Yemeni families. He tells us how the war in Yemen started over five years ago, and describes the resilience of the Yemeni people through the conflict. Alex also points out that the ongoing bombing campaign is senseless since the Hadi government that it seeks to restore to power lacks real legitimacy. He calls for global pressure on all governments arming the warring parties in Yemen to stop fueling the bloodshed, emphasizing that this war is inhumane and must stop.

Unparalleled reportage on Yemen

This podcast consists of brief episodes showcasing a variety of issues and perspectives from Yemen. I like that the host gives a platform to Yemenis, as most Americans are unaware of the devastation caused by this war our weapon sales to Saudi Arabia enable.
