One on One w/Award-Winning Documentary Filmmaker Mahmoud Kaabour

Making a business out of being a filmmaker is an incredible challenge. Many dabble with the idea, maybe, produce one film then get a 'real' job to pay the bills. Not our next guest, Mahmoud Kaabour. Dubai-based Kaabour has managed to start up and run one of the leading production companies for non-fiction films in the region and then topped that by producing a charming and lyrical documentary about his grandmother, Teta Alf Marra that swept up 7 Audience Awards and played to packed audiences in 55 countries.

This year he is at it again, with what sounds like another winner - Champ of the Camp- about UAE construction laborers who participate in a massive Bollywood singing competition.
