Mendeel Um A7mad (NxIxSxM) presents the tissue box as an unlikely Kuwaiti national icon in a film that aims to create a representation of the “chai dhaha” ritual, a traditional female forum, using an all-male cast in homage to Abdul Aziz Al-Nimish, an actor who pioneered gender role reversal in Kuwaiti theater.

 

In Mendeel Um A7mad (NxIxSxM), the chai dhaha ritual is set out-of-context, in a giant wedding ballroom, illustrating the absurd spatial conditions of post-oil-boom Kuwaiti interior aesthetics.
