Short movie: Hearts of Palm

Post by Mark

Hearts of Palm is a short movie set in August 2nd 1990 and deals with Kuwaiti students living in Miami Florida during the Iraqi Invasion of Kuwait. It’s written and directed by Faisal AlNashmi, a film student studying in the University of Miami. I’ve seen quite a few short movies related to the invasion but they’ve always been from the perspective of people inside Kuwait so I thought it was interesting for this film to be from a perspective of the students studying abroad. I can imagine it must have been very difficult for them being all across on the other side of the world and not being able to do anything other then sit and watch the news. [Video Link]

    off topic but:
    I used to have a VHS tape, with a collection of music videos from the Gulf had the song wa6ani al nahar, and status quo’s “in the army now” and “I’ll see you in my dream” had a collection of footage regarding the gulf war..does anyone have the same tape? this footage is not available on the internet..!

    I found it to be too stale and cheesy. Just my opinion on the movie. The subject matter is good but just the movie is too predictable.
