Best of British Films and Emirati Shorts - Week 2

In the second week of the UK Film Season brought to us by the British Council, we have Never Let Me Go which will be preceded by a short film from the UAE called Amal's Cloud.

I talked about my experience of the first week here and I'm glad to say that the British Council got in touch with me saying the problem has been fixed. I will go to The Picturehouse over the next couple of days and hope I won't leave disappointed by the service.

Again, please do spread the word about this mini film festival, it's on till 15th March 2011 with new films every week.

Venue: The Picturehouse at Reel Cinemas in Dubai Mall

Never Let Me Go
As children, Ruth, Kathy and Tommy, spend their childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. As they grow up, they find that they have to come to terms with the haunting reality that awaits them.

Amal's Cloud
Amal waits in the middle of the yard shifting between patience and hope; waiting for the jinx to melt and disappear.
