If you're in the Miami area or somewhere nearby in the US, come see Captain Abu Raed at the Miami International Film Festival. Click on the link for showtimes. We're not in competition, but will be screening in the world panorama progoram.

See you in Miami

Thank you everyone. It will be released in neighboring Arab countries towards the end of March. A s soon as I have more information, I will publish it for sure.

As for Canada, we are awaiting the next step in striking a distribution deal for the rest of the world. More news to come in the next few weeks.

I believe we will, but I think Toronto is not till September. We'll see how things go before then.

I just saw the film and I was impressed. Can I ask if you were infulenced in your theme by the work of Christ. It seems as if many of the themes you emphasize (forgiveness, self sacrifice, love, new life) are similar to Christ and His mission and message.
Tks, VPG

Thank you. I think it's all subconscious and embedded in mythology, which is what we use to explain the inner stories within us. Whether it's about Christianity or simply humanity... I think more than anything else, it's about goodness.
