1001 Nights to Screen at Canadian Museum


VANCOUVER: Episodes of Big Bad Boo Studios’s 1001 Nights are slated to screen next month during such events as Summer Camps, Family Sundays and the Cultural Hotspots Festival at Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum.

There will be accompanying lesson plans and activities created by Big Bad Boo based on the Arabian Nights-inspired series that are meant to teach young viewers about civic values, critical thinking and more. 1001 Nights, which features such famed characters as Sinbad and Ali Baba, airs in more than 120 countries around the globe. The show is created by Aly Jetha and Shabnam Rezaei. It is currently in production on a third season.

Big Bad Boo’s Shabnam Rezaei commented: “Our episodes and lesson plans have been implemented in schools across the globe and more recently in vulnerable, war- or violence-torn areas, to teach kids about empathy, honesty and tolerance. We are proud to offer these to the Aga Khan Museum, to reach young Canadians via the museum’s excellent cultural programs.”
