West Virginia University will begin the fall 2010 Brown Bag Lunch Film and Discussion Series with a documentary about students who journeyed through Saudi Arabia.

The film will be shown on Thursday, Sept. 16 at 11:30 a.m. in the Gluck Theatre of the Mountainlair.

“Seeing Through the Sand,” which was produced in 2008, details the experiences of a group of Harvard Business School students who traveled through Saudi Arabia.

The documentary will be presented by Younis Altewejri, president of WVU’s Saudi Student Association. It is being shown in honor of the end of Ramadan and Saudi National Day.

The event, sponsored by WVU’s Office of Student Life-Multicultural Programs, is free and open to the public. Pizza will be provided first-come, first-serve.
