This film is about one of the most important historical traded commodities of the UAE — pearls. We follow Major Ali, someone with pearl diving ancestry as he takes us on a pearl dive, following the original methods. He reminisces about the past, whilst emphasising the importance of keeping the traditions alive for the young of today.
This film is part of ‘Reflections’ — a compilation of five stories narrated by Emirati voices that were shown at Expo 2012 Yeosu, Korea. Storm provided the full post production package including production space during this fast turnaround project for Big Features.
