Four Acts of Disruption
Four Acts of Disruption is an episodic petro-fictional narrative set in the 1930s while the newly formed Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is adjusting to the arrival of American oil prospectors.
The film follows Ayed and Roy, two driven individuals from starkly different backgrounds and with very conflicting relationships to the environment. Ayed, who will inherit the role as head of his Bedouin tribe is immediately suspicious of the Americans’ presence, and his desire to preserve the nature of the Bedouin way of life conflicts strongly with Roy’s determination to strike oil in the barren Arabian desert.
Ultimately, however, Ayed joins the adventurous exploration, and the two men contend with ecological, communal, and personal obstructions, forcing them to re-examine their values, adapt, and reinvent themselves as well as the destiny of the new frontier.
