The Dubai In Me. Regie: Christian von Borries, D 2010 | 78 Min.
In Anwesenheit des Regisseurs, anschließend Gespräch, moderiert von Dunja Bialas

Combining shots of Dubai with footage from Second Life, real estate promotional videos, and quotations from French philosopher Jacques Rancière on the nature of image-making itself, The Dubai In Me portrays boom-town Dubai, at its recent peak, as a theoretical object and product of free-market liberalism. An essay film with multiple narrators and techniques, which won a special mention at the 2010 Marseille International Film Festival, the documentary plays with subtitles, voice-overs, and the orthodoxies of documentary film-making, to create a unique piece – which in conclusion, suggests that the conflicts and forces creating Dubai, are found in Europe, and indeed in all of us.

Christian von Borries produces media from other media. He is an orchestra conductor, composer and producer of site specific psychogeographic projects. His work was comissioned by Lucerne Festival, Kunstfest Weimar, Volksbühne Berlin, Kampnagel Hamburg and documenta 12 among others. His first film "The Dubai In Me" was shown at film festivals all over the world as well as the Yekaterinburg Industrial Biennale and the principio potosi exhibition in Madrid and Berlin and online. This year, he will take part in the central asian pavillion of the venice biennale.
