"Sea Shadow with Empire & FortissimoAbu Dhabi, 27 August 2011...

...In one of the most important steps in supporting Emirati cinema, Imagenation Abu Dhabi has signed two exclusive deals to distribute Nawaf Al-Janahi's new feature film "Sea Shadow", and its other locally produced films. The first deal is with Empire International who will handle the distribution to theaters and on DVD throughout the Arab world, while the second deal is with Fortissimo Films who will be responsible for the international sales and worldwide distribution....

...Fortissimo's chairman Michael J. Werner added: "We are witnessing the creation of a new unique and talanted source for international cinema, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Imagenation Abu Dhabi"...

..."Sea Shadow", written by Emirati screenwriter Mohammed Hasan Ahmed, and undergoing final touches by Al-Janahi at the moment, is a story that explores relationships, and the clash between the old and new; following a young Emirati boy and girl on a shared journey of self-discovery."

Read more about Al-Janahi's films on his official website here:

Most recently, Al-Janahi directed the award winning film THE CIRCLE (2009), which was one of my personal favorites of the last few years and one of the few films to make it internationally out of the UAE. It is poetic and thought-provoking, riveting and simply unforgettable. Read my interview with Nawaf on his previous film, THE CIRCLE here:
