Fans of sci-fi and philosophical enigmas were thrilled to experience an in-depth discussion with two leading men of the hit HBO drama ‘Westworld’, during an ‘In Conversation’ at Souk Madinat Theatre during the fifth day of the Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF). Held in collaboration with OSN, fans of the show and TV works watched an episode of the latest epic hit series before hearing unique perspectives and stories from Wright and Hemsworth.

The one-hour drama series ‘Westworld’ is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

Meanwhile on the red carpet, Lebanese drama ‘Solitaire’ thrilled Madinat Arena audiences during its highly anticipated world premiere at DIFF 2016 and was attended by famed director Sophie Boutros and film talent Julia Kassar, Betty Taoutel, Jaber Jokhandar, Ali el Khalil, Said Serhan and Nicole Kamato.
