Amsterdam – International distribution and production company Rooftop Content Group will be unveiling an impressive slate of new programming at this year’s MIPTV 2017, including the docu-drama series The Great Arab Revolt and the sports documentary about Barça, Take The Ball. Pass The Ball.


Produced in Jordan by Spica Media Production and directed by Aseel Mansour and Roland May The Great Arab Revolt is a historically accurate dramatization which brings the time, place and pivotal events of the revolt to life and tells the tale of an upheaval whose ramifications continue to be felt across the Arab World, directly affecting the lives of every Arab.


Sharif Hussein bin Ali, a man of high stature drawing his lineage back to the Prophet Muhammad had come to believe that the Islamic Caliphate was in its final days and that a bleak future had become inescapable. His vision gave rise to what would come to be known as the Great Arab Revolt, a military and intellectual revolution to demand independence and freedom for Arabs and protect their identity, which laid the foundations for the ideology of Arab Nationalism that has survived to this day.
