Cinema Akil, the UAE’s newest arthouse cinema, has only been in its permanent venue for a few months, but already feels like an institution. A hub for film fans and culture buffs to appreciate the artistry of moviemaking, the setting here elevates the ordinary viewing experience and celebrates the cinematic craft. Running from July 20 to 27, viewers can catch a free screening of the Sundance award-winning film Unrest, which documents the story of a student suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome and her battle for answers and cures.
