World Premiere of Karima: A Day in the Life of a Henna Girl at LACMA
Yareah Magazine
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) hosts the world premiere of Moroccan artist Hassan Hajjaj’s first feature-length film, Karima: A Day in the Life of a Henna Girl on Wednesday, May 13 at 6:30 pm. Feel free to let me know if you’d be interested in covering the film and if I can help with any follow up information. A trailer for the film may be viewed here.

During the course of a day, Hajjaj follows a businesswoman named Karima and her friends, who work as henna artists in Jemaa el-Fnaa, the historic market in Marrakesh’s old city. From the quiet confines of Karima’s home to the bustling market, where the women and one man woo tourists into adorning their bodies with henna, the film captures the humor, creativity, and strength of the “henna girls.” Set against the vibrant background of the city, Karima provides a glimpse into the life of a Moroccan woman and the colorful world that inspires Hajjaj’s work.
Hassan Hajjaj and the film’s principals, including Karima, take part in a Q&A after the screening. This program coincides with LACMA’s exhibition Islamic Art Now: Contemporary Art from the Middle East (part one), featuring 25 works from LACMA’s growing collection of contemporary Middle Eastern art, including two photographs by Hassan Hajjaj: Caravane (2011) and Gang of Kesh (2000).

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
