    "An unadulterated view of the true Yemen (with a) clarity and precision often lacking in or misinterpreted by foreign media."
- MSANews

This lyrical film introduces us to Bader Ben Hirsi, a British-born Yemeni living in London after his parents' exile from Yemen. Bader returns to Yemen to re-discover his country, its people and traditions.

Under the guiding hand of eccentric Englishman Tim Makintosh-Smith, who has been living as a Yemeni in the ancient city of Sana'a for the past 16 years, Ben Hirsi travels throughout his ancestral homeland.

Exquisitely filmed by award-winning cinematographer Koutaiba Al Janabi, The English Sheik and the Yemeni Gentleman chronicles their interaction and emerging friendship as they explore the beautiful Yemen countryside.
