The Dubai in Me
D: Christian von Borries, Germany 2010, 78 min, English OV

Dubai embodies the dream come true of unbridled growth. The images of Dubai that circulate throughout the world conceal not only the suffering of countless workers, but also the lawlessness that enabled the Persian Gulf’s economic boom. Such images also influence our own fantasies of an ideal location, of the “Dubai in us”. Borries' film approaches this phenomenon playfully. He contradicts the classical rules of the documentary and searches metaphorically for the truth behind the facade.
