The award-winning director, Sohan Roy, decided on Fujairah as one of his locations for shooting a portion of his forthcoming film, ‘DAM 999’. Update: See the trailer.
The main message centres on the consequences of a dam disaster that symbolises the psychological dam of human emotions. The film traces the emotional life of a mariner and the pressures on his family. The Fujairah segment involves scenes on a ship at Fujairah overlooking the Indian Ocean.
The film’s official website gives information on the movie, the crew and it offers a photo gallery and a trailer to tease.
