Directed by Spanish director Agusti Villaronga, "Born a King" features a number of Saudi actors and crew, with filming taking place between the kingdom and London.
Born a King, which tells the story of young King Faisal’s diplomatic mission to London in 1919, a trip which led to the formation of Saudi Arabia, will start screening in cinemas in Saudi Arabia and other GCC states from September 26.
The film, a joint production between Saudi Arabia, England and Spain, was filmed in Riyadh and London, and directed by Balearic Spanish director Agusti Villaronga.
The film talks about King Faisal’s early life – from his birth in 1906 to his return from England in 1920. It also describes his first important diplomatic journey to the British Royal Court, where 13-year-old-Prince Faisal met King George V of England, Winston Churchill, Lawrence of Arabia, and Foreign Secretary Lord Curzon.
Vox Cinemas will be screening the film in its theatres in the Kingdom, in addition to distributing the film in cooperation with other cinema companies in KSA and other Gulf countries.
