Our Approach

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_empty_space height=”120px”][vc_column_text]

Whether they travel for work, education, family or pleasure, revolving cities, changing views and a jet-setting lifestyle are becoming the norm for many of the modern Arab women in our target audience. They are exploring what the world has to offer them and are empowered by the prospect of unknown realms.

We adopted the Japanese concept of ‘mā’, which means ‘space and time’ to bring to life this theme of exploration. Mā has been described as a pause in time, an interval or emptiness in space and is the fundamental time and space we need to grow.

Our story follows the experience of a young Arab woman who travelled West to study – we see the challenges she faces; we feel the torn sense of home sickness and her fear of leaving a comfortable and safe life to explore her mā.

The film starts slowly in a dream-like state and keeps speeding up until our muse is literally spinning between East and West: Dubai and New York. The momentum builds to a crescendo to evoke a sensation of excitement, leaving the viewer stirred with intrigue.

For me it was important to pack the film with visual opportunities: urban shots against the backdrop of New York and Dubai, mixed with human movement and emotion. I wanted to create a poignant and eclectic story that speaks to the journey every one of us takes to find our ‘mā’ – a story that wanders through events and embraces experiences.”[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”text-2-w”]
