A kind of anti-Lawrence of Arabia-cum-Bedouin-Western, Theeb is the story of a young Bedouin boy who hooks up with his brother and an Englishman crossing his part of the desert during the Arab revolt against the Ottoman empire. We watch his swift coming of age alongside his tribe's but, instead of the Englishman leading them like sheep, we see the events from Theeb's young viewpoint.
"Like Timbuktu, (from earlier in the season) which lamented the growth of radical Islam in contemporary Mali, Theeb insists on the importance of preserving cultural difference against the totalizing vision of racial and religious hegemony" - Oleg Ivanov, Slant Magazine
An action adventure...with a difference.
