Camels remain central to life and culture in the Arabian Peninsula and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in particular. Produced by the King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture (Ithra), this film takes a fresh look at the history of these remarkable animals, the deep-rooted customs and traditions that have embedded them in Saudi culture and the emotional connections between the people of the Kingdom and their camels. Filmed in the spectacular Al-Nyaq region, it showcases the grandeur of the landscape while discussing the camel’s temperament, the deep bonds between the animals and their human owners, handlers and camel whisperers as well as harder facts: the camel’s role in the economy and what the future holds for the camel industry.
