Cinema Akil, Dubai’s independent film platform, is showcasing a variety of movies and shorts during its ‘A Hard Day’s Night Summer Film Festival’ until the end of August. The series, which is presented by Alserkal Avenue, will explore themes such as “the meaning of labor, process, technology, industry, craft, and rigor, and their imprints on human condition” throughout the summer.
Visitors can expect to see highly reflective films such as The Sun (Solntse), which explores portraits of dictators, the 1913 cult classic Nosferatu, which is said to be the first vampire film ever made, and the lighthearted American comedy Little Miss Sunshine. Next week, from June 25th to 27th, Duel in the Sun, a technicolor western film produced by David O. Selznick and set in Texas in the 1880s, will be shown at the festival.
The films will be screened at the A4 Gallery in Alserkal Avenue, with seating on a first-come basis.
