Now, being a serious lover of all indie art projects (let alone Kuwaiti indie art projects), I was very intrigued and immediately made my way to the IndieGoGo link. And, I’ve gotta say, I was très impressed by what I found.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with the IndieGoGo concept, its basically a non-profit, global fundraising website in which people post their campaigns, in the hopes of raising enough money to actually carry them out. It can be anything from a creative business campaign to a worthwhile humanitarian cause.
And Hamad Al-Tourah’s independent film–Playtime (Waqt Al-La’ab)–is definitely a campaign worth supporting.
If you click on the IndieGoGo link you should find all the info you need to know about the film, the film maker, the budget required, the creative concept, as well as what Hamad Al-Tourah is going to personally give each contributor to show his gratitude.
Obviously, the more generously you give, the more generously you’ll be rewarded.
Given that this is a film which not only depicts Kuwaiti life but also acknowledges Kuwait’s expat community (both Arab and otherwise), I honestly think that this kind of creative project is just what Kuwait needs right now. At a time when Kuwait is currently being faced with a lot of societal isolation and sectarianism, its great to see a project that not only includes everyone but is also an enjoyable piece of creative work.
I personally donated a small sum to the project and I honestly can’t wait to see this baby make it onto the big screen! Please show your support for Hamad Al-Tourah and this very promising film by giving if even a tiny contribution. Here is the IndieGoGo link where you can contribute to help make this film happen… Plus get some very sweet loot!
All my love!
