In commemoration of UAE Commemoration Day and the UAE National Day, we are pleased to present a series of five short films directed by award-winning and critically acclaimed Emirati filmmakers. The screenings will be followed by a Q&A with the directors.
Dimmed Light: Al Shehhi’s latest short explores light and darkness in a mysterious way. An extinguished wick and a broken lantern sit in a devastated space. Will the wick be able to repair the lantern and bring it to what it once was, a source for light in the darkness? ‘Dimmed Light’ answers this question with poetic grace.
The Remaining Time: Earth is invaded by aliens from outer space! A girl is trapped in a room with a stranger, both of whom are focused purely on survival.
Escape: An intriguing collection of short stories, featuring a group of unrelated characters, who are each dealing with life’s dilemma.
Mamsous:While struggling between depression and anxiety, a filmmaker films three people, who share their experiences with clinical depression and panic attacks.
