Kuwait International Film Retreat

To Rest in Peace will screen at the first annual Kuwait International Film Retreat on three consecutive days, April 6-8th. Check out their website for the schedule and location.

We have the great joy of screening with three talented filmmakers who were very generous in their support of To Rest in Peace.

Ali Younis, who was the 1st AC and production manager on the Failaka Island shoot, is the director of photography for War Zone.

The writer-director of War Zone, Hasan Abdal, was also very generous with his time and advice in making To Rest in Peace.

And Vachan Sharma, a fellow USC Trojan who consulted with me in the early stages of pre-production, and appeared as an extra in the hospital scene, co-directed TOKAI (Street Cleaner).

This is the first of a series of exciting updates we will post in the next couple of weeks. To get advanced notice of our progress, before it becomes public, you can join the facebook group.

Best of luck to Ali, Hasan, Vachan, and the other Kuwaiti filmmakers represented at the festival.
