A Bahraini documentary, which tells the story of the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Programme (CPISP), is winning international accolades at film festivals around the world.
The film, A Vision of Promise - Salman bin Hamad was directed by Bahraini-Syrian director Eva Daoud and produced by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities (BACA), in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the International Scholarship Programme started by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister.
“This is a film celebrating the 20-year journey of the CPISP, which also coincided with the 100th anniversary of the establishment of formal education in the kingdom,” Eva told GulfWeekly.
“Our island is small in terms of geographical size, but large in heart, spirit and accomplishments, built, fuelled and driven by its people and their achievements.
“As a citizen, I have always been proud of CPISP, and as a film-maker, I had to jump at the opportunity to portray this innovative programme and showcase my home as I know and see it.
