A historic event took place in Somalia – the first film screening since 1991 took place. Thus, the country intends to restore its cultural heritage, writes The Guardian.
It is noted that the show took place at the National Theater of Somalia. It was there that a terrorist attack took place in 2012, as a result of which about 10 people were killed.
“This will be a historic night for the Somali people: it shows how hopes have been reborn … after so many years of trials, '' said theater director Abdikadir Abdi Yusuf.
It is known that the audience saw two short films directed by Somali Ibrahim SM. These were the paintings “ Ritual '' and “ A Date from Hell. ''
A ticket to the movie was $ 10, but viewers had to go through several checkpoints to get there.
