Minutes from the Miracle City
Hakim, a Pakistani taxi driver whizzing through the streets. Patrick, a Ugandan security guard with aspirations of becoming a writer. Farida, a Moroccan beautician hoping for a fresh start. Saeed, a respected Emirati journalist just back from London.
Taking place across the last few days of Ramadan, ‘Minutes from the Miracle City’ is a unique retelling of the virtuoso project that is Dubai.
