Description

QAI invites friends and members of its Young Professionals Council to a film screening of Dari Qatar, followed by a discussion with Qataris about life and society in the country.

Dari Qatar is a crowd-sourced movie filmed by Qataris and residents across the country throughout 2016. Each participant contributes the perspective of their life in the country, from a natural gas rig employee to a longtime shop owner in Doha’s historic Souq Waqif, from a young military draftee to an elder man who remembers life in Qatar before its natural gas boom.

Following the screening, participants will have the opportunity to discuss life in Qatar, informally, with QAI employees who have lived there. This discussion will break down stereotypes about life in the Arab world and give guests a chance to learn more about an often misunderstood country and region.
