Jeddah: The city of Dubai is famous for its luxury resorts and sprawling green spaces, but it also has a huge number of expatriate residents, many of them living in Saudi Arabia.
With this in mind, it’s easy to see why many of these people want to get into the entertainment industry, which is booming in the Middle East.
The film expatriat, Karim Ahmed, made a documentary film titled How to Get Into the Middle Eastern Film Industry.
The subject matter is familiar: a family travels to the Middle Kingdom to pursue their dreams and meet the world’s most famous celebrities, while trying to find a new life.
The family is not exactly rich, but they do have an opportunity to live and work in a beautiful country that is a popular destination for expatriating families.
The documentary tells the story of Ahmed’s father who has worked as a waiter at a restaurant in Saudi town of Jedda and his two sons who were born in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“I started to learn about the UAE when I was 10 and when I finished school, I decided to stay,” said Ahmed.
He started looking for films in Dubai to pursue his career as an actor and writer.
After finding an article about Emirati film making and finding the film “Jeddah in the Desert”, he decided to follow the trend.
“I went to Dubai and took the first flight out to see the city.
Then, I got the call to come to the UAE to start a film,” said the 29-year-old.
The UAE has become a hotbed of film production, with over 5,000 cinemas across the country and a population of more than 2.3 million.
Ahmed, who started his career at the age of 17, has a passion for filmmaking and said he feels he is an artist and a filmmaker.
“My aim is to make a film that I feel is relevant to the current situation in the UAE and that’s why I decided that I wanted to be an Emirati expatriator,” he said.
He added that he wants to make films that reflect the country’s culture, religion and politics.
The movie is based on a book titled The Emirati Dream: An expatriation story, which has been written by a film producer based in the city of Jidda, Saudi Arabia, and was released in 2017.
He said he wanted to make an UAE film with an authentic feel.
“The UAE is a country of its time and its culture.
There are a lot of things that are similar to each other, like a large population, high unemployment, and a strong culture, which makes for a great setting,” said Amir Hamid, the producer of the film.
“It’s a beautiful place.
We wanted to create a film about the Emirati dream, to tell a story about what life is like for expats there.
We were really happy when we were contacted by Jeddas director and producer,” he added.
“We were looking for an UAE filmmaker to take the story and give us his vision and experience of Emirati life,” said Hamid.
The story is told in the form of a series of stories, which are told through the eyes of Emiratis who have fled the country due to the economic crisis.
“There are stories of expats who are forced to go to work and are often exploited and then they become the victims of abuse and racism.
We are very conscious of our UAE identity,” said Salman Alwan, the film’s producer.
“This is an attempt to show the Emiratis culture and history, which Emiratis are proud of and proud of being proud of.
The films aim to tell the story through the perspective of the expatriated family, and their experience of life in a country they call home,” he continued.
The first film, which had been completed at the end of February, was made in the style of a family-friendly drama, with a cast of around eight Emirati actors.
“After seeing our first film in Abu Dhabi, we knew we needed to take a more global approach and to create something that is inclusive to the entire expatriacy community,” said Alwan.
The second film, entitled “The Story of the Emirate”, was released on February 25, 2018.
It tells the stories of the lives of a group of expat families from the UAE, with the aim of creating an expatriative film that is not only representative of the UAE but of the country.
“In a country where it is hard to find the right film, and where it feels like you are not welcome, it is very important that a film is made that is relevant and that reflects the Emirates culture and traditions,” said Adnan Al-Khalidi, the director of the first film.
The director added that the second film is a project that is also focused on
