The title Baraka is a word that means blessing in many different languages. IMDB rating is 8.1

The movie was filmed at 152 locations of 24 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, China, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Kuwait, Nepal, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States. It contains no dialogue. Instead of a story or plot, the film uses themes to present new perspectives and evoke emotion purely through cinema. The film was the first in over twenty years to be photographed in the 70mm Todd-AO format.
Cinemagic is finally back in Kuwait, and Baraka is the first for the rooftop screening. Looking forward to it.

Sounds good. A rooftop screening sounds like a lot of fun.

Yeah, the venue and the movie are both very un-kuwaitly... You're always welcome :-P
