Kuwaiti Film Heaven's Water

The Kuwaiti film “Heaven’s Water” by international award-winning director Abdullah Boushahri has been selected to compete for the Muhr Arab Award in the short films category at the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) 2010 edition. The film was written by Boushahri in collaboration with Emarati screenplay writer Mohammad Hassan Ahmad and starring the renowned actor Khaled Ameen and up-and-coming actress Haya Abdulsalam.

The 23-minute film takes place in Kuwait City and revolves around (Tawfeeq) a common peddler, who meets (Latifa) a pregnant girl in her second month at a local fish store. Brought together by their interest in a yellow fish, they endure the tribulations of her abortion, and his fear of water. Their bond grows stronger as they lose themselves in the bustle of the city.

I strongly encourage Kuwaiti films to be produced and BeyondDreams seems to have done an excellent job in developing a high quality standard film. We wish them the best of luck!
