It looks as if the internation film scene is about to get a little more crowded. Dubai is reportedly building a Hollywood sized studio.I’m immediatly struck by two thought. First, America can’t rely on its historical assets to keep them atop the international world of entertainment anymore. As more and more contries vie for recognition, creativity and good storytelling are going to win out over whatever franchise spinoffs Hollywood dishes out. Second, one wonders what kind of films will come out of a place like Dubai. Could a thriving arts culture in the Middle East ease old tensions?
