Theeb, Arabic for wolf, is a Jordanian Arabic language film directed by Naji Abu Nowar. The film is about a young Bedouin boy, named Theeb, who must fend for himself and survive in the Wadi Rum desert. Taking place during the first World War and after the Great Arab Revolt against the Ottoman empire, Theeb, a coming of age film, has often been hailed a “Bedouin Western”. It won the Best Director award at the 71st Venice International Film Festival and later went on to be nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards.
