I saw this last year but didn't finish it. I'll try to finish it today. I'm glad it's making waves.

We need a Somali Film Festival, imagine how much fun that would be.
Especially if they find a way to make it halal compliant- no musical instruments and so forth.

Mogadishu used to have two film festivals before the war.

However, many countries today organise film festivals across major world cities/cities with large diaspora population that show that nation’s most popular films.

If the Somali government gets a bit more revenue, they should definitely look at this as a way of rebuilding their reputation. I regularly go to the French Film Festival in Australia.
 
This captured the emotion of being in Somalia quite well. I felt quite lonely and empty when i lived there. It was vast land filled with people living in normalized sorrow.

It was the best time in my life no stress at all and I felt upper class. Guess it’s because I wasn’t sent to widhwidh or Badhan like you 😭😭
