Anadeek Ya Yemen – I Call You Yemen

Since March 2015, Yemen has been undergoing an internal and external conflict that has destroyed the country’s infrastructure and led to a humanitarian disaster. Thousands of Yemeni men, women and children have been killed or injured, and millions have been displaced and traumatised.

Yemeni young people from Liverpool Arabic Centre have worked with filmmakers Optical Jukebox and Liverpool Arab Arts Festival to produce a revealing documentary, capturing how this far away conflict affects Liverpool’s Yemeni people on a daily basis, as they face constant anxiety for the well-being and safety of their friends, family and their beloved Yemen.
