MENA Premiere


A breathtaking, original documentary which views the world upside down by visiting four pairs of locations diametrically opposite to each other on the earth’s surface. The pairs seem mystically connected, somehow united by their oppositeness: a peaceful sunset in Entre Rios and the bustling streets of Shanghai; fields of burning black lava in Hawaii and a village kiosk in Botswana – 8000 miles through the centre of the Earth.
