BBC Front Row on Theeb

jordantheebAfter a few tweets and a bit of pestering, I was lucky enough to be invited by presenter Samira Ahmed onto Front Row, the main daily arts programme on BBC Radio 4 in the UK, to talk about Theeb, a new and – in my entirely humble opinion – brilliant film by Jordanian director Naji Abu Nowar.

The programme page is here, or you can click on this autoplay link for my bit, which lasts about five minutes. It was live and a bit nerve-wracking, but still lots of fun to do – and great for the chance to yacker about such a great piece of work.

I’ve done more on Theeb recently too – watch this space…

    Really enjoyed the interview. I hope the movie will be showing in Los Angeles at some point.

      Thanks RMW, that’s really kind of you. I think it already has! You could always check their Facebook page for any upcoming screenings.

      Also, Jordan has nominated Theeb for the 2016 Oscars – submission deadline is Oct 1 2015, with announcement of selections shortly thereafter, so hopefully it will get another LA run soon…
