Filmed entirely on location in the United Arab Emirates, City of Life follows the lives and fortunes of three central characters living and working in Dubai. The film depicts the very different cultures and lifestyles that exist side by side in this complex, multi-cultural city.
The destinies of a privileged young Emirati man, a disillusioned Indian taxi driver and a European woman are set to collide as their very different lifestyles become interwoven in a tale of greed, ambition and betrayal. Dialogue is spoken in English, Arabic and Hindi, with subtitles.
The cast reflects the multiple ethnicities portrayed in the film and includes British actors Jason Flemyng and Natalie Dormer, renowned comedian Ahmed Ahmed and UAE national Saoud Al Kaabi. Famous faces from India’s film industry include TV presenter Jaaved Jaaferi and Bollywood actor Sonu Sood. Also in the cast is Canadian/Iraqi hip hop performer Yassin Aslaman (The Narcicyst) and Romanian/German actor Alexandra Maria Lara, who has previously worked with Spike Lee and Francis Ford Coppola.
The film is written, produced and directed by Ali F. Mostafa, an award-winning Emirati filmmaker whose previous works include Under the Sun. “Making a film is never an easy journey,” said Mostafa, “But dedicating three years of my life was incredibly fulfilling considering what we achieved. I hope the film paves the way for more local and international films to be made in the region.”
