seems to be piquing a great deal of interest. This historical reconstruction was shot by Agustí Villaronga in Saudi Arabia, a country that had previously been closed off to cinema for 50 years. The movie tells the story of how 13-year-old Faisal travels to London on a diplomatic mission, after World War I, coming face to face with key figures from that time. Its international sales are being handled by Madrid-based sales agent Latido Films, headed up by Antonio Saura, one of the biggest companies when it comes to circulating Spanish and Spanish-language cinema all over the world. As luck would have it, yesterday there was a virtual meeting with the team behind the feature, where they discussed how Saudi Arabia is now enjoying a real boom in its audiovisual industry (the last screening of Born a King will take place at 5 pm on Friday 26 June, in Cinema from Spain).
