Citytellers Dubai

Citytellers_Dubai takes as its subject the most famous contemporary case of neo-urbanism. A city built and designed like a white elephant, that for a few years lived an unsustainable economic expansion resulting in its recent crisis.

The images depict the ambiguities of such an atmosphere: the camel races that exploited and tortured thousands of kidnapped child jockeys (now replaced by humanoid robots) or the condition of slavery which subjects thousands of workers from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The film frames the constant paradox of the parallel dimension where the propaganda of a paradise of luxury and wealth approaches a dark side of poverty and misery on the limits of human dignity.
