It should be out in the rest of the Middle East at the end of June. I've been told June 26, but I will announce as soon as I have confirmation. Thank you for asking.

i watched "Captain Abu Raed" last Thursday in San Francisco. I must say you made me an ever so proud Arab woman
. That was a brilliant piece of work.The cinematography was to die for, the lighting, the music. We felt every step Abu Raed took up those steps, the breeze and the view from his rooftop took our breath away. It was a full experience. every trinkit in his home made it more and more real.. you left no details to fate. THAT is good directing.Your story, is a real story of a real taboo issue in our world, especially. We can never have enough stories of pain, courage and love. Especially when they are so well written,well executed and are well felt. I wish you the greatest success... a talent like yours should be encouraged and supported. Bless you my dear and may you never stop creating such beautiful work. I do wish you'd stick to our issues though, we have so much to deal with and it's time we do so through the eyes of talented artists such as yourself. Looking forward to seeing it again and again and I have friends who are waiting to see it in kuwait and dubai any chance you'll show it there?? Haya
