Presented by Aramco Services Company, this 1970s industrial film shares the experiences of women married to Aramco employees to help inform new Aramco wives about what to expect upon moving from the United States to Saudi Arabia. The film dramatizes both challenges new transplants may face, including cultural differences, as well as the amenities offered by Aramco, such as housing, schooling, and healthcare. Aramco Services Company (now known as Aramco Americas) was formed in 1974 when Aramco relocated its North American headquarters from New York City to Houston. As a subsidiary of Saudi Aramco (officially known as the Saudi Arabian Oil Company), it connects oil business in the Americas with its parent company in Saudi Arabia. Robert Yarnall Richie, who produced and directed this film, was a freelance industrial photographer and filmmaker who worked with various large corporations in Texas and around the globe.
