It's interesting how even this day and age, and even in modern movies, Hollywood still depicts the Middle East as either backwards or very 'simple'.
While we're definitely proud of our heritage and where we came from, it would be nice to see a different side to cities like Doha, Manama, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
We've compiled a list of screenshots from movies and shows that have had scenes set (apparantly) in the GCC. "Qatar" was shot on a built set in Mexico, Abu Dhabi was in Morocco, and the Bahrain set was filmed in a Ranch in LA.
Now just like most countries, there's the more modern and attractive side, and there's the more run down areas. In this post, we're showing off what 'could' have been shown off too. Imagine a movie set in West Bay or The Pearl, or what about showing off the ACTUAL Souq Wagif rather than having to film a scene in Mexico or Morocco (beautiful place by the way).
