Today’s Guest: Amin Matalqa, director, Captain Abu Raed

Amin Matalqa made a movie after being challenged by David Pritchard, an executive producer for “The Simpsons” and “King of the Hill.”

There’s much more to the story than that, of course, but let me just add a few choice hints. Pritchard told the Jordanian writer and director to make it a comedy, something in which Charlie Chaplin would have wanted to star.

And you know what? That’s exactly the film that Captain Abu Raed is. And watch for it in your city; Captain Abu Raed will be in limited, but expanding release across the United States this summer.
