Queen of the Desert

Algarve will have open air cinema (free) amid Roman ruins. The event runs over three weekends in August. There are films that are suitable for all ages and Queen of the Desert is one of those films chosen.
The Roman Ruins of Milreu in Estoi was chosen as the stage for the film cycle. The best thing about this place besides the Algarve heat is the fact that the cinema sessions are held amid Roman ruins. The initiative is called Cinema nas Ruínas and takes place every Saturday in August.
The Regional Directorate for Culture of the Algarve (DRCALg) states that the main aim of this cycle of films is “to give the public new experiences related to heritage and archeology”. The project is the result of a partnership between DRCAlg and Cinemalua, a cultural association founded in February 2020.
Saturday, August 21st, the film Queen of the Desert, starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Damian Lewis and Robert Pattinson was selected to air. The Werner Herzog’s film is an adaptation of a “biographical story” by Georgina Howell.
The sessions start at 9:30 p.m. and are free of charge. To register, all you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the film you want to see.

It was a far cry from the set of smash hit drama Homeland for actor Damian Lewis when he popped into a Tyneside library. The English actor, known to millions of viewers as Marine Sergeant Nicholas Brody, visited the city this week to delve into Newcastle University’s Robinson Library archives on Washington-born explorer Gertrude Bell.
Having previously starred in Band of Brothers, since 2011 he’s been playing Brody, a turned prisoner-of-war in the American hit show.
Seen here with library archivist Geraldine Hunwick, the actor was researching his new role as Charles Doughty-Wylie in the new film Queen of the Desert.
