Al Tih (The Wilderness) is based on the first novel in Abdelrahman Munif’s epic and seminal quintet Cities of Salt, which tells the story of how the lives of a Bedouin family and community are upended with the arrival of the Americans and the subsequent discovery of petroleum. The discovery would change not just Arabia and the region but the entire world, with repercussions felt to this day.
