THEEB

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film – Academy Awards 2016(2014) dir Naji Abu Nowar w/Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat, Hussein Salameh Al-Sweilhiyeen, Hassan Mutlag Al-Maraiyeh, Jack Fox [100 min; DCP]
In 1916 as war rages in the Ottoman Empire, Hussein raises his younger brother Theeb in a traditional Bedouin community that is isolated by the vast, unforgiving desert. The brothers’ quiet existence is suddenly interrupted when a British Army officer and his guide ask Hussein to escort them across the desert. A beautiful and thrilling adventure film.

“A disarmingly complex boyhood adventure with no shortage of tension or harsh beauty, ‘Theeb’ marks a winning debut feature for co-writer and director Naji Abu Nowar.” – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

“Jacir Eid beautifully conveys a mix of emotions, from wonder to fear to determination.” – Fred Camper, Chicago Reader

“The further this strikingly assured debut feature by the British-born director Naji Abu Nowar goes along, the more it seems a metaphor for fierce self-determination – an origin story for Middle Eastern discontents.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe
