Curiosity Stream Will Premiere Its First Original Feature Film ‘HEVAL’ This Fall

Curiosity Stream is entering the world of Original feature films with the premiere of HEVAL next month. The full-length documentary is produced by Jupiter Entertainment and will premiere on Curiosity Stream on September 23, 2021.

HEVAL tells the true story of British actor Michael Enright who gave up his industry career to fight ISIS in Syria. Some saw his efforts as heroic, while others thought it was just a self-serving publicity stunt to further his acting career. Either way, the documentary features gripping footage from Enright’s own helmet camera with videos from deadly battle scenes and ISIS interrogations.

Because of his controversial motives, Enright has had a hard time returning to England or the US after his service ended.

HEVAL explores the incredibly complex issues centered around the United States’ relationship with the Middle East and its allies by focusing on the fascinating story of one man,” said Rob Burk, Head of Original Content for Curiosity Stream. “Jupiter Entertainment has built an impressive track record in factual television, and we are thrilled to partner with them, once again, to tell his incredibly compelling story.”

Patrick Reardon, President of Jupiter, added: “Michael’s story is ripe with global politics, controversy, sacrifice, and unprecedented access into a war against evil. It’s the exact type of gripping and complex narrative we are exploring more of as we continue to prioritize premium documentaries.”
