On 8th April 1961 the MV Dara, a ship carrying passengers between India, Pakistan and the Gulf, sank just off the port of Dubai. An estimated 238 people lost their lives. But some bodies were never found. Some deaths were never confirmed. And some relatives continue to this day to search for their loved ones.

 

Could someone have survived? And what would they see if they came to the city now, fifty years later?

Combining images and anecdotes, Stranger takes the viewer on a journey through modern-day Dubai linking the city and its people with their often-forgotten past.
