Discuss the representation of women and the use of folklore dance in Kuwaiti films

A-I am sending you a sample where you must write a literature similar to that structure, and a literature that will give you an idea about what research I am doing but needs adjustments, therefore I’ve written a reading list where you must use these books and add them to the literature, please note that in the bibliography you are not allowed to use website references, but rather books , articles and journals.

B-check the reading list and their bibliography, you will have to summarise them then write a literature review (critical) what are their findings? why they are good to my subject of study? what do they lack?

you will have to put in mind that in the literature you must include these points:

1- reading the texts about the bibliography I gave you to read about, decided, and after reading making notes about what you think is useful from those texts;

2- compiling a comprehensive filmography of Kuwait cinema .
