6 • 1 • 2014 DUBAI CURIOUS
w/ filmmaker Zaid Abu Hamdan
This one's short, sweet, exotic and probably horribly recorded. On the ride to the airport after three jam-packed days in Dubai, Dennis chats with the friend he went there to visit; filmmaker and TV producer Zaid Abu Hamdan, who is in Dubai working on the reality competition show The Victorious, which is like America Idol for soccer players. Topics include what it's like to work in Dubai, the addictiveness of the dance track "Hideaway," and Zaid's brilliant short film Bahia and Mahmoud, which is available iTunes.
