Finding Art in Dubai
Thursday: 2:30 pm – Domenico’s
Friday: 4:00 pm – Rotary Center
Dubai is a city in the cross hairs of explosive growth and crushing economic collapse. The feature documentary Glitter Dust: Finding Art in Dubai follows the city’s cultural capital. Three artists balance the city’s artificiality (indoor ski slopes in the desert) and its brutal truths (political and economic pressures). Art and life merge as delightful hand-drawn animations interplay with live footage. In turns funny and custom essays only for you poignant, this unauthorized documentary explores the human labor, both artistic and otherwise, behind the flash of Dubai.
