Saudi Arabia: 1: A Country in Motion



Directed by: PBS

(15 mins) This film attempts to challenge some of America's misconceptions about Saudi's and Saudi life by providing rare glimpses into the lives of individual Saudi's caught up in one of the fastest and most profound transformations in history. The film raises a number of key questions such as: Can a society absorb such rapid change? Must a nation accept the values of the West along with its technology? Will Saudi Arabia experience the political turmoil that oil wealth brought to its neighbor Iran? Part 1 of 5 adapted from a three-hour series originally broadcast on PBS.
