  • I Have Always Been a Dreamer

    2012. USA/UAE. Directed by Sabine Gruffat. This documentary travelogue portrays two cities in contrasting states of development: Dubai, UAE, and Detroit, USA. Gruffat, accompanied by different cameramen in each city, captures scenes that reflect how collective ideologies shape the physical landscape and impact local communities in the context of economic booms and busts. The film offers rare insight into the forces at work in the heartland of America and the gleaming city of the United Arab Emirates—and the surprising amount they have in common. (IS) 78 min.
