Hey! Umm the first link doesn't work unless you're registered at the nytimes. Just in case you didn't know.

Bah! Here I had my heart set on making the first decent kuwaity movie, just needed a year or two to finish up my studies, and outta nowhere out pops our neighbors with this.

I wish them the best of luck! Hope the critics embrace it... or not... depending on whatever they want it to do. Although, not to seem rude or anything but I do find this Saudi heartthrob Hisham Abdulrahman laughable. I really hope no harm comes to the Saudi chick. Chithi willa yi7aliloon damha? Mo shay... Ah well, take care, yeah? Laters!

Hey you..Thanks for the heads up about the link..I didn't know...oops..
it worked with me which was weird since the nyt is always so stingy with their articles..maybe that was a fluke..I will check it asap..
Yeah the whole heartthrob thing is a bit weird..

Ok the link has been replaced with one that unfortunately has less pictures, but has a video which is a plus.

BuNaz, It's very nice to have you in these parts of the blogworld :) I certainly meant it and I have no doubts about your abilities..And the best thing about it is that you love what you do! I am looking forward to you next film.
By the way, I think the documentary should be required viewing for all schools..every year.
Give N a big hello...we miss her and miss the laughs.
