DIFF – Dubai International Film Festival
Grain of Sand enjoyed it’s World Premiere at Dubai International Film Festival on the 8th December 2017. The response was amazing and we travelled to Dubai with the musicians featured in the film, Ahmed Al Ghanem and Dar Burshaid Shabab Al Hidd, for a live performance. Given the fact that the weather was not on our side, it was a little hair raising! We did the sound check but at this point the inflatable screen couldn’t be inflated because of high winds. It also started raining so it could have all gone horribly wrong….
I remember leaving the hotel to go back to the venue for the screening and concert, not knowing if all woulg go ahead as planned, but lo and behold, the rain had stopped and the screen was up! It was an amazing evening, the end of one journey and the beginning of another.
