Neon Dreaming In Dubai
Those ever-suave filmmakers over at Sole DXB have unleashed their latest short, a surreal journey through the neon-lined streets of old Dubai. While the City of Gold is best known today for its towering skyscrapers, man-made islands and stockpile of abandoned supercars, the Dubai of the early '90s was far from the thriving metropolis of grand decadence that stands today. Once a fixture in every Gulf neighbourhood, the baqala (aka Middle Eastern bodega) is becoming a relic of time. With this cultural icon soon to become lost to the ages, join Sole DXB as they pour one out for ol' Dubai in The Baqala.
