Algeria has announced its intention to ban the screening of the film "Barbie" in cinemas across the country due to the "corrupt values" that the film purportedly promotes.

The state has announced that following an examination, the screening of the film "Barbie" will be prohibited in the cinemas of the North African country. The film "Barbie" was released a few weeks ago and has been garnering immense success worldwide, but has faced repeated bans in Muslim and Arab countries.

According to the Algerian Ministry of Culture, the film promotes homosexuality and does not align with the religious and cultural values of the state of Algeria.

The official reason for the film being banned from screening is "damaging societal values." However, according to several sources within the country, the local Ministry of Culture is concerned about the success of a film with feminist and pro-LGBTQ themes in the country. The expectation was that the film would achieve significant success even in Algeria.

The film has been banned from screening over the past few weeks in several Islamic countries, including Lebanon and also Kuwait, where it was banned in order to "protect public ethics."

The film "Barbie" has achieved international success and has become a significant cultural phenomenon, but the gates of the Middle East remain largely closed to the successful film.
