In collaboration with the Embassy of the United States in the UAE and the United States Consulate General in Dubai, Cinema Akil presents FIERCE!, an American Film Showcase program dedicated to the women who shook the ground they stood on … to the girls who threw the ball beyond all limits … to the strong, bold, and courageous risk takers, homemakers, glass ceiling breakers … to the women who take the world on and never stop.
The special program of success, failures, curiosities, and preoccupations puts women’s perspectives front and center on the big screen for the Cinema Akil community.
The program will be presented twice a month at A4 Space, Alserkal Avenue in Dubai and Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi from May 5th until September 2nd 2018. Check the schedule on our calendar page and the films below.
U.S. Embassy Abu Dhabi collaborates on a variety of cultural events each year that link Emirati audiences with American culture. The embassy promotes these events primarily through social media. We invite you to follow the embassy on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs helps foreign missions create long-lasting ties between the United States and other countries by sharing America’s rich culture with foreign audiences.
The American Film Showcase brings award-winning contemporary American documentaries, independent fiction films, and documentary know-how to audiences around the world, offering a view of American society and culture as seen by independent filmmakers. Funded by a grant from the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and produced by the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts (SCA), the Showcase joins local embassies and partners to highlight the value of film in fostering understanding and cooperation, dialogue and debate.
