Shahid VIP announced that ‘Carlos Ghosn: The Last Flight’ will be broadcasted on their platform in the MENA region. The documentary about the former Nissan chairman will debut on the streaming platform on July 8, 2021. The worldwide premiere of the documentary took place at Sheffield DocFest 2021 earlier this month.
The documentary is a joint production by MBC Studios and France-based international production house, Alef One, Carlos Ghosn: The Last Flight showcases the full story of Ghosn, the former CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. Directed by Nick Green and executive produced by Nora Melhli, the documentary offers exclusive access to Ghosn, his wife Carole, and through other interviews and archival footage.
Speaking about the documentary, Nick Green said: “Intercutting Carlos Ghosn’s narrative with that of his supporters provides a sense of immediacy and access from inside this ‘David vs Goliath’ fight against what he refers to as ‘an injustice’. But this is a story for which there are different points of view. For Carlos to give full disclosure and tell the story entirely in his own words will leave the whole world gasping.”
On the other hand, Peter Smith, Managing Director of MBC Studios, said: “Carlos Ghosn: The Last Flight is one of our most anticipated productions this year, and it’s easy to see why. With exclusive access to Ghosn and some of those close to him, it is a compelling documentary that tells his side of the story that the public hasn’t heard in great detail yet. Given the nature of events, this is a production that will appeal beyond the MENA region, which is part of our mission at MBC Studios – to showcase MENA-focused stories to the rest of the world. We have more films and series of international appeal in the pipeline with MBC Studios. Stay tuned.”
