Cinema Release "Barakah Meets Barakah"

arsenal distribution is releasing BARAKAH MEETS BARAKAH on March 9. After its world premiere as part of last year's Forum programme, Mahmouds Sabbagh's "romantic comedy" was shown and awarded at numerous international film festivals. The film tells of Bibi, a worldly-wise lifestyle icon, who meets Barakah, a civil servant from a humble background. A remarkably candid love story from Saudi Arabia which uses stabs of acerbic humour as a counterweight to the difficulties faced by the couple.
