I Wasn't Cheating (Ghashash)

Made in Kuwait - Ajyal Youth Film Festival 2017

Mousaed Khaled / Short Narrative / Kuwait / 2016 / 15 min / Colour / DCP / In Arabic / English subtitles / Qatar Premiere
Rated: Parental guidance is advised for viewers under the age of 13. Individuals under the age of 13 are not admitted into cinemas unless accompanied by an individual aged 18 or older.


As if writing exams weren’t stressful enough, Vice-Principal Abu Nawaf shows up during today’s Arabic test, and because of a misunderstanding, Suleiman is accused of cheating – and is given a zero mark on his paper. Rectifying the situation proves rather more difficult than expected, however. Part morality tale, part gentle comedy, ‘I Wasn’t Cheating’ takes us all back to those tense days of academic success.
