This week in Amman features numerous art exhibitions, including an exhibit opening by Hani Hourani titled Faces of My City, where Hourani showcases his “Love letter to Amman” at Foresight32 Art Gallery (Sunday 6pm). Other exhibits that continue showcasing art include Jacaranda Images’ Carving Shadows and Orient Gallery’s Children of Gaza.

Like Jelly, a Cairo-based band and part of Egypt’s new music generation, will be performing joyful, satirical and, above all, witty music about modern society in Blue Fig (Sunday at 9 pm).

Darat Al-Funun presents a screening of short films under the theme “Architecture in Cinema”, selected by film critic Yazan Ashqar. This selection of short films presents examples on the different usages of architecture in cinema through its various genres. By employing architecture in the cinematic image as concept, metaphor and symbol, these films provide varying social and political commentary, by the means of fiction, documentary, animation and experimentation. (Tuesday at 6:30 pm)

There will be film screenings during this week at Rainbow Theatre, with tickets at 5 JD for Rainbow Film Club Members and at 6 JD for non-members. On Sunday, The Bling Ring, an American satirical black comedy directed by Sofia Coppola will play (7:15 pm and 9:15pm); on Monday it’s This Is the Eng, an American apocalyptic comedy film written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (7:15 pm and 9:15pm). Tuesday’s film will be Behind the Candelabra, directed by Steven Soderbergh and based on an autobiographical novel (7:15 pm and 9:15pm); and Wednesday is Classics Night with Some Like it Hot (7:15 pm) and Dr Zhivago (9:15 pm).
