Produced and directed by the late King’s nephew, Saad Kurdi, the documentary paints a portrait of an extraordinary man who loved his family and his country in equal measure. He was a global statesman, a peacemaker, and a passionate King who modernised his country, transforming education and healthcare within Jordan and rebuilding the country’s infrastructure.
Mr Kurdi said, “Producing this film has been one of the most inspiring and humbling experiences of my life. Interviewing those who knew and worked with my uncle has given me a much broader appreciation of His Majesty, and what an extraordinary individual he was. I hope that this film will be a lasting testimony to a very great man.”
