WHY NOW?

February 26, 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of the liberation of the State of Kuwait. To date, there has been no feature-length documentation (in fiction nor non-fiction form) of the events that took place within the seven month time frame of the brutal Iraqi “Saddami” occupation. In fact, the event has been erased from the local scholastic history books, and is today only a faded memory for those who lived through it; and a “non-event” for those who did not. Talk of occupation, social harmony, and heroism has been replaced by political banter and social/economic discourse. The scars of the invasion have faded, and the minds have chosen to forget.

This project is a call for remembrance and celebration of that time. In its manifestation, it will also serve to shed light on the true nature of the Kuwaiti spirit; that of unity, tolerance, respect, and compassion.
