We had planned to screen Lawrence of Arabia in this slot (given it is the centenary of the Battle of Aqaba which features in the film), but decided to wait to screen it later in the year, on its re-release in a newly-restored 70mm print!

This gave us just the excuse we needed to screen the wonderful Theeb, which is set, though it is never stated, around the same time and place.

1916. In the farthest reaches of the Ottoman Empire, a young Bedouin boy, Theeb (Jacir Eid Al-Hwietat), and his brother Hussein (Hussein Salameh) act as guides to a British Officer (Jack Fox) and his companion. When — suddenly and abruptly — their plans go awry, the brothers must adapt and survive in the desolate yet beautiful landscapes of the Hijaz region.
