ARABIA 3D reveals a unique culture, a history full of adventure, an environment of extreme challenges, a people of strong faith, and a chance for a film to bridge cultures and reduce misunderstanding between peoples.
An epic combination of historical recreations and contemporary scenes of everyday life, ARABIA 3D follows the story of charismatic 22-year-old Arabian filmmaking student Hamzah Jamjoom as he returns home from Chicago's De Paul University to make a film about his native culture. As Hamzah discovers the roots of his people's ancient traditions, audiences will learn how Arabian society developed through history into what it is today and discover a visually striking world of fascinating heritage.
Travel to the exotic and fascinating land of Arabia. Explore the ancient tombs of a lost city; dive through the reefs of the Red Sea; and experience the Hajj -- the largest gathering of people on Earth. Discover an extraordinary culture and experience modern day Arabia in the midst of monumental change.
