Most people know Dubai for its massive skyscrapers and luxurious hotels, but few know that the city was built by modern-day slaves.

An portrait film on the city, its disenfranchised workers, utopian architecture, and consumerist heaven/hell of shopping malls. Made in 2006 – directed, shot and edited by Omair Barkatulla
