Order Captain Abu Raed, a film by Amin Matalqa,
available from Amazon.com by clicking on the DVD cover
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.
