The film is about a man called Shakib Arslan, the Arabic Lebanese writer and thinker who was famous for the title of ‘Prince of the statement/Amir Al-Bayan’ due to the richness of his writings. He spent his life advocating Arab and North Africa issues for independence and liberation from colonialism, and was considered one of the greatest thinkers and advocates of Islamic unity, as well as of unity and culture.

Chakib Arslan was a prolific producer of authoring, investigative journalism, politics and translation that could not be abridged in one hour, not to mention our ability to obtain the largest amount of an exclusive archive through his family.

It is a 52 minutes documentary about Prince Arslan, who spent his life advocating Arab and Muslim issues for the sake of independence and liberation from colonialism. He was named ‘Prince of Al-Bayan/statement’ for the abundance of his writings and is considered one of the greatest thinkers and advocates of Islamic unity, as well as of unity and culture.

This personality was concerned not only with the liberation of the Levant and the other Mashreq countries that were under the French or British Mandate, but also firmly believed that the Maghreb was an integral part of the Arab and Islamic world. If any part of it is exposed to colonialism and backwardness, it is a duty for the Muslims to save it before the whole drowned without exception in backwardness and became prey to Western colonialism. This idea was not just a slogan for Arslan, but a well-established practice and embodiment on the ground; His pen and experience were a way to guide the Maghreb politicians and reformers and to support the liberation and patriotic movements of the Maghreb. He also took from his office in Geneva a platform to raise European public awareness of Muslim issues and to force decision-makers to end the colonial tide in the Islamic world and to liberate its occupied territories.
