Dubai Tourism has announced an exciting new collaboration with Hollywood superstars Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson and Zoe Saldana. The project centres around the short film ‘A Story Takes Flight’, which stars the actresses as themselves embarking on three journeys of exploration through Dubai, filled with inspiration, discovery, and human connections.
Reliving her experience, Oscar award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow said: “One of my favourite parts of travelling is to truly connect with a city, its people and the local culture. Dubai is special because it’s a melting pot. Both the ones born here, who are so proud of their heritage, and those who are recent transplants, bringing with them their own values and traditions, contribute to writing the future story of the city. My time in Dubai was beyond anything I expected, and there’s still so much more to see.”
Shot over eight days with a crew from over thirty nationalities, the production of the film evokes the spirit of a city born from multiculturalism, which continues to thrive as a consequence of people from all walks of life calling it home.
