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.


Based on the 1929 short story by Kuwaiti writer Khalid Al Faraj, this is the tale of a beautiful woman who must suffer loss to gain understanding. Fearful that she is barren after she marries, Muneera relies on superstitious rites and the hope of miracles in order to ward off her despair. Dreamily and seamlessly moving between Kuwait City and Venice, ‘Muneera’ is a cautionary tale that warns of paying attention to the mystical while ignoring the truth in front of us.
