KA Black Gold


  • Jean-Jacques Annaud


  • Tahir Rahim
  • Mark Strong
  • Antonio Banderas
  • Freida Pinto
  • Riz Ahmed


Two warring Arabian leaders – Nesib (Antonio Banderas) and Amar (Mark Strong) – agree a shaky detente when the former “adopts” the sons of the latter in a traditional peace deal. However, when Nesib breaks the conditions of the treaty and allows American prospectors to drill for oil in the disputed ‘Yellow Belt’ the boys – one a red-blooded warrior, the other a mousy academic - must decide whose side they are on. Quest For Fire director Jean Jacques-Annaud brings a widescreen sensibility to this complex story of intrigue and double-dealing, fired by the coveted "black gold" of the title.
