''The New Great Game''

From Phantom Report

''Canadian filmmaker Alexandre Trudeau’s documentary titled The New Great Game: The Decline of the West & the Struggle for Middle Eastern Oil, is a timely and thought-provoking work on the events surrounding the oil-producing regions of the Arabian peninsula.

Circulating around the region, from the Shatt Al Arab to the Suez Canal, he gives a lens eye view of current history by focusing on countries like Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Somalia, Egypt, Israel, Bahrain and Libya, where recent happenings have threatened the flow of oil. India, China and the USA too figure in the film, representing outside powers which have a stake in the oil resources of the Middle East.''
