For our inaugural event, on April 19th, we will present a screening of the film, followed by a VR discussion. Over the course of three days, we will host special screenings inside the CULTURUNNERS Majlis space—a unique and sprawling studio right in the hub of Tribeca.

About Misk Art Institute
Misk Art Institute is a new cultural organization operating under the auspices of the Misk Founda- tion, established by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. Led by Saudi artist Ahmed Mater, the Institute was created to encourage grassroots artistic production in Saudi Arabia and enable international cultural diplomacy and exchange.
Developed in collaboration with an international network of artists and journalists from the Middle East, Europe and the United States, CULTURUNNERS is an independent model of cultural ex- change and production; one which empowers and mobilizes international artists to tell stories and create art across physical and psychological borders.
