Shot near the deserts seen in Lawrence of Arabia, like that film Theeb is an adventure that is hard to come by these days. Set amid WWI, Naji Abu Nowar’s debut paints an intimate human story of brotherhood and survival on the grand canvas of the desert. Winner Venice’s Horizons best director prize.

Nowar has a great eye for landscape and for the varying patterns and textures of the desert, both big and small.

Free of sentimentality, Theeb is a beautiful tribute to a way of life that has nearly come to an end, set during the crucial period when it began to disappear.

Magnificently shot in Jordan, and cast with non-professional Bedouin actors, notably wide-eyed, engaging young lead Jacir Eid, Theeb is a stark, tense affair that feels strangely timeless; with its leisurely but to-the-point pacing, it feels like the sort of laconic art-house drama that could have been made at any time over the past five decades.
