AANM's Global Fridays series and the Detroit Institute of Arts’ Friday Night Live united for the first time with the National Arab Orchestra (NAO) for the world premiere of an original score written by NAO founder/director Michael Ibrahim, paired live with screenings of rarely-seen silent films from the 1920s and 1930s by pioneering Egyptian director Mohamed Bayoumi. The performance took place at the Detroit Film Theater at DIA, with commentary and background on the films provided by Egyptian history and film scholar Mohannad Ghawanmeh. This performance was also the signature event of Diwan7 / MOVE 2017.
