Event Description

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society and Lewes Public Library present THEEB as May’s film for the Around the World series. THEEB, a coming-of-age adventure will screen at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, May 4 at Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa). The Around the World film series presents critically acclaimed, international independent films. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

The year is 1916 and World War l is coming to the Ottoman Empire. Theeb (Wolf in Arabic) lives in a remote Bedouin village where custom dictates strangers be treated with generosity. When a blue-eyed Englishmen arrives asking for help, Theeb embarks on a perilous desert journey to guide the Brit to a secret destination. Though just a young boy, Theeb quickly understands that to survive he must embrace the attributes of his namesake, the wolf.  Beautifully staged and filmed, Theeb showcases dramatic desert landscapes and won a Jury Prize for Best Cinematography and Artistic Direction at the Cairo International Film Festival. THEEB was also an OSCAR® nominee finalist for Best Foreign Language Film. Nadine Ajaka of “The Atlantic” says, “THEEB is the tiny-film-that-could, shot on a shoestring budget and starring actual Bedouins ad-libbing on screen in probably the most authentically Jordanian movie, well, maybe ever.” [Jordan, 2015, Runtime: 100 minutes, In Arabic with English sub-titles, Not Rated]
