Kuwaiti movie “Swarm of Doves” is set to release on Thursday in the country. The movie is Kuwait’s first feature-length film about the 1990 invasion of the Gulf state by Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. “Inspired by true events” that occurred during the seven-month occupation; the movie has garnered a lot of attention prior to its release.
Producer Sheikha Intisar Salem al-Ali Al-Sabah told the press, “These are stories of people who defended Kuwait at that time.”
She added, “The aim of the film is not to create any grudge but to highlight the brotherhood, tolerance and unity Kuwaitis experienced during the invasion”.
Actor Daoud Hussein reveals, “The film does not bear any ill will to the Iraqi people. The director and screenwriter made sure this film doesn’t put salt on the wound.” Hussein plays the film’s protagonist resisting the invasion.
Directed by Ramadan Khasrouh, “Swarm of Doves” highlights moments of humanity that transcended the conflict between Iraq and its tiny, oil-rich neighbor.
For instance in a scene, an Iraqi soldier is ordered by his commander to kill a Kuwaiti but he refuses after remembering words from his father during childhood about the bonds between the Kuwaiti and Iraqi peoples. Another scene shows a Kuwaiti resistance fighter who forgives an Iraqi soldier during an armed confrontation, prompting the soldier to offer the man an escape from the army siege around his house.
