RIYADH, September 3, 2019

King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies has announced that international film "Born as King'' will start showing in cinemas in the kingdom and other GCC states from September 26.
The film, a joint production between Saudi Arabia, England and Spain, deals with the visit of King Faisal bin Abdulaziz to Britain in 1919. It was filmed in Riyadh and London under the management of Spanish producer and Oscar-winning Andres Gomez, said a Saudi Press Agency report.
The Saudi historical film talks about King Faisal's early life - from his birth in 1906 to his return from England in 1920 - and describes the first important diplomatic journey of a Saudi citizen to the British Royal Court, where there, the young Prince Faisal - 13 years old - had to meet with King George V of England, and other personalities such as Winston Churchill, Lawrence of Arabia, and Foreign Secretary Lord Curzon.
Vox Cinemas will be screening the film in its theatres in the kingdom, in addition to distributing the film in cooperation with other cinema companies in the kingdom and other Gulf countries.
