Tigris Entertainment is a film development company in Santa Monica, CA. Our forerunner project DEFIANT is the movie adaptation of the successful biographical book OUT OF IRAQ published by Random House International/Crown Publishing USA. DEFIANT chronicles the harrowing escape of our company's principal partner - Mr. Lewis Alsamari. At 18, Lewis was conscripted into Saddam's brutal army (and subsequently transferred to military intelligence). Shot in the leg while escaping, he was almost eaten alive by desert wolves crossing the border into Jordan. He eventually reached the UK (where he grew up as a child) claiming political asylum and training as a British lawyer, then an actor. He then embarked on a sacrificial operation (with his British-Jewish wife) to liberate his family using fake passports and illegal entry via the Far East. He starred in the Oscar nominated hit "UNITED 93".
