The Challenge Film Screening 

Falconry has a history that stretches back over 40 centuries. In the West it was a prevailing passion of the medieval aristocracy, but its prestige continues undiminished in contemporary Arab culture. Italian film maker and acclaimed visual artist Yuri Ancarani observed and filmed for 3 years to capture the spirit of a tradition that allows its participants to maintain a close rapport with the desert, despite their predominantly urban lifestyle. A rare and cinematically stunning window into the opulence of Qatar.
