This month’s Film Club selection is THEEB, Jordan’s acclaimed Best Foreign Language Film nominee for the 2016 Academy Awards. Winner of Best Director (Orizzonti) at the Venice Film Festival, “Naji Abu Nowar’s impressive debut feature” (Variety) is a “quietly gripping adventure tale” (Thompson on Hollywood) that Slant Magazine said heralds “the inauguration of a new film genre: the Bedouin western.”
When we first saw Theeb in February 2015 at the European Film Market in Berlin, we were immediately fascinated by two epic adventure stories. First there was the film’s on-screen narrative – a powerful coming of age tale, set in the land of Lawrence of Arabia, rich with themes of honor and revenge, reminiscent of the great Hollywood westerns. Next there was the film’s behind-the-scenes story – an independent production from Jordan, shot on 16mm by a first-time feature director, featuring a cast of non-professional Bedouin actors, which went on to become an award-winner in Venice. Both stories captured our imagination, and so just like the title character in the film, we were compelled to join the adventure ourselves. In March 2015, Film Movement acquired the North American rights to Theeb. Eight months later we released the film theatrically. It was shortlisted for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in November, and then in January 2016 became an Academy Award Nominee (the first ever for the nation of Jordan and for Film Movement). Now we invite you to experience the incredible adventure of Theeb for yourself… From the red desert to the red carpet, it is one we believe you will never forget.
