Post by Mark

ARÉATA is a short film by Ahmed Al Terkait, an independent Kuwaiti filmmaker. The film was officially selected to compete in the Dubai International Film Festival earlier this year and was only published online last week.

The film is a psychodrama/thriller following a young woman with a hair loss condition called Alopecia Aréata. She visits a psychiatrist hoping to uncover the mystery behind her illness. You can watch the full film above or you can checkout the trailer below.

Local Barista Draws Jennifer Lawrence in Latte

Post by Mark

Over the weekend one of my twitter followers sent me the image above. The barista at the local coffee place His Majesty The Coffee drew Jennifer Lawrence in her space suit from her new movie Passengers. How cool is that?

Thanks @Osamabul!

Amazon Prime Video Now Available in Kuwait

Post by Mark

Last week Amazon announced that Amazon Prime Video was officially available in more than 200 countries… including Kuwait. I had previously assumed that there was no country restrictions since I was using Amazon Prime Video anyway, but I guess there was. Amazon Prime Video if you haven’t heard of it before is similar to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. They have a ton of popular shows and movies available on the network (like all 8 seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm), but they also have a bunch of great exclusive content like The Grand Tour and my favorite, The Man in the High Castle. If you already have an Amazon Prime account then you already have access to Amazon Prime Video (and Music), but if you don’t then the monthly subscription to Amazon Prime Video is just $2.99.

I use Amazon’s FireStick to stream Prime Video onto my TV but there are multiple ways of watching including using your browser. For more details, check out this [Link]

Update: If you use the Kuwait version of Amazon Prime Video a lot of the content will be restricted similar to how Netflix restricts content based on geographic locations. To get around this you need a DNS proxy and I personally use smartdnsproxy.com
