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

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.
