KUWAIT, Aug 9 (KUNA) -- The Kuwaiti Ministry of Information's committee on cinematic censorship decided on Wednesday to ban the screening in Kuwait of "Barbie" and "Talk to Me" films.
The decision stemmed from keenness on protection of public ethics and social traditions, Undersecretary of the Ministry for Press and Publication Lafy Al-Subei'e said.
"The Committee noted that both movies promulgate ideas and beliefs that are alien to the Kuwaiti society and public order," Al-Subei'e, also head of the Committee, disclosed.
"While deciding on any foreign movie, the committee usually orders censoring of the scenes that run counter to public ethics.
"But a film carries alien concepts, message or unacceptable behavior, the committee decides to bars the stuff in question as a whole," he explained, adding that this rule applies to all foreign cinema production. (end)
