Dawu Khafet (Dimmed Light)
Award-winning Emirati filmmaker Waleed Al Shehhi, whose script for ‘Dolphins’ won him the IWC Filmmaker Award at DIFF 2013, returns to the Festival with the world premiere of ‘Dimmed Light’. Continuing his passion for animation, Al Shehhi’s latest short explores light and darkness in a mysterious way. An extinguished wick and a broken lantern sit in a devastated space. Will the wick be able to repair the lantern and bring it to what it once was, a source for light in the darkness? ‘Dimmed Light’ answers this question with poetic grace.
