Arabia, directed by Greg MacGillivray, tells the story that began with the nomadic tribes that first inhabited the vast desert lands and the undeniable impact their culture has had on the world; from the golden age of Islam to the resurgence of present-day Saudi Arabia on the world stage.
Arabia takes viewers on a fascinating journey into the heart of the Arabian Peninsula, beginning with the first tribes that braved one of the harshest environments on the planet and found ways to not only survive, but to create a thriving culture unlike anything the world had seen before. From the region’s incomparable contributions in the fields of science, mathematics and astronomy, to the legendary Bedouin hospitality and founding of the Muslim faith, Arabia illuminates the history of one the most important and influential cultures in the world.
Beautifully shot in 70mm, Arabia won awards in multiple categories in the 2010 Giant Screen Cinema Association Awards.
