Mostafa then directed the first Emirati #blockbuster, #CityofLife, a complex portrait of the city of #Dubai, told from three different cultural perspectives, and featuring such international stars as @nataliedormer (@gameofthrones ). His sophomore film, #FromAtoB, was the first Emirati film to open the Abu Dhabi #FilmFestival. His most recent feature, produced by @imagenationad , is one of the highest profile films ever produced in the #MiddleEast, the dystopian spine chiller, @worthyfilm .
Ali was awarded #ManofTheYear in 2014 by @esquiremiddleeast magazine's #ManAtHisBest Awards for his accomplishments in helping build and develop a burgeoning UAE #filmindustry. Enjoy our exclusive the UAE’s #1 filmmaker!
