Two documentary films commemorate the extraordinary life of King Abdulaziz ibn Saud, first King of modern Saudi Arabia. In a reign lasting more than fifty years, King Abdulaziz united his country and laid the foundations for the modern Saudi state. Soldier, statesman and religious leader, he put an end to chaos and insecurity in the peninsula, uniting the regions while strengthening their commitment to Islam. He galvanised development and laid the foundations for the state we see today.
