"Wa waila"(Oh Torment) is a surreal film based on an old Kuwaiti folk song, whos words are almost like a trance of sadness. I used this aesthetic as a metaphor for this film, interpreting it as a vehicle for personal grief : the film depicts love lost, displacement, gender identity, and death in an extremely visual manner. It can be described as visual poetry. I personally enacted the main male "singer", and all the roles of men and women are swapped in the film.
