Tim Barger

Born in Saudi as one of the first "Aramco Brats" in a compound of the American-Arabian Oil Company -  his father was CEO between 1961 and 1969 - Tim has been inhabiting both the American and the Saudi cultures for all his life.

He built up a succesful video distribution business in Jeddah, which during the two weeks of the Mecca siege in 1979 led to his arrest by religious police: some people thought that a feature film Tim distributed and screened in a Jeddah hotel was nothing else but a "live broadcast from the fightings in Mecca"...
