About This Event 

A bedouin boy and his older brother escort a British soldier across the Arabian peninsula during World War I.

“An inversion of Lawrence of Arabia — a film told from the perspective of Arab bedouins rather than colonial adventurers, a scrappy coming of age story rather than a grand tale of epic, colonial ambitions.” – The New Republic

“Eye-searing landscapes and a fascinating historical setting turn this tale of innocence lost into a classic adventure film.” – Time Out
