Wasati (2016)

Sorry, no trailer

Ali Alkalthami is a director, producer, content writer, actor and co-founder of C3Films and Telfaz11. His body of work addresses the socio-cultural issues in the Gulf and Middle East region. Ali is one of the leaders in the new media movement in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. Wasati is based on true events that happened during a play in Riyadh 10 years ago. The play was called "Wasati bela Wastiah" which roughly translates to "A Moderate Without a Middle-Ground," where a group of extremists attacked the theater and the play was shut down. That story shook the society and it was all over the news. The film addresses that event and retells the story from a different point of view.
