A CITIZEN WITH HEARTBURN

 

Hosted by Khalid Yeslam. ACWHB is a new irreverent satirical show on Saudi you tube channel, Mahalyoon. Having studied in the west and now returning to his home city of Jeddah, Yeslam is finding more and more issues with his country of birth. Cynical and Anti-Institutional, A Citizen with Heartburn takes on issues such as immigrants rights, women's rights, equality and the wealth gap.

Our brief was to depict Khalid taking a walk around Jeddah and running into (and away from) examples of corruption, hypocrisy, despotism and obscene wealth. Our frequent collaborator, Finn McNicholas, nailed the audio on this one.
