The experiment of the GCCAn overview the Gulf Cooperation Council’s history, its vision and its long-term objectives, this film looks at key policy areas and how the GCC affects everyday life on the Arabian Gulf.
Living and working in the GCCThere is a wide gap between the perception and reality of living and working conditions in GCC countries. People chose to live in the region for a variety of reasons and this looks at some their experiences, and how the GCC has had to adapt to the challenges that the influx of millions of migrant workers has posed.
Education and Human DevelopmentGCC countries have young and expanding populations and this film explores the major efforts being made to invest in their future and looks at the vast network of modern schools and universities that is springing up across the Gulf to reflect the traditional importance of learning and wisdom within Islamic culture.
Investment in InfrastructureThe oil revenues enjoyed by the GCC are being systematically invested in the development of the region’s infrastructure. This film looks at some of the incredibly ambitious projects currently under construction in GCC countries.
Traditions and ProtocolsThe major changes experienced by GCC countries have not eroded traditional values. This film examines the meaning behind some of the customs and how a firm focus on the importance of family and hospitality remains at the heart of modern Gulf society.
Wildlife, Climate and TerrainThe ecology and environment of the Gulf is unique, and its deserts and coastal regions contain some spectacular landscapes and distinctive wildlife. As well as celebrating the region’s natural beauty, this film also reports on the steps that the GCC member states are taking to protect the environment for future generations.
ArchitectureThe beauty and simplicity of Islamic architecture can be seen in some of the most iconic buildings across the world. This film demonstrates how this heritage is being revisited to create a new Golden Age of architecture across the Arabian Gulf.
The Journey of OilOil is the bedrock of the region’s economy and this film examines the history of oil in the Gulf, its journey from the oil fields to the world’s petrol pumps, pharmacies and a wide range of consumer products – and the crucial role it plays in geopolitics.
GCC FILM SERIES – THE WORLD’S ENERGY RESERVOIR
In 2011, the Joint Programme Production Institution of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCCJPPI) commissioned a series of eight films about the Arabian Gulf. Entitled “The World’s Energy Reservoir”, its objective was to promote the aspirations of the people of the GCC and to accurately portray all aspects of life within the region.
Through Pier Communications, we were in turn commissioned to research, write and produce these films.
