Dubai International Film Festival is running right now. It has several documentary sections in its extensive programme even if it indeed is red-carpet festival for feature films with hommage(s) to stars of the cinema world, this year Martin Sheen (Apocalypse Now).
I found – to be screened – Mark Cousins with his wonderful ”A Story of Children and Film”, one from his impressive series about cinema, the fine ”The Shebabs of Yarmook” by Axel Salvatori-Linz, Errol Morris ”The Unknown Known” (!), ”The Square” by Jehane Noujaim, and Sara Ishaq with her ”The Mulberry House”, reviewed above.
The festival (10th edition) runs until December 14.
