Doha is known for its soaring and sparkling skyline. In ‘Immortalizing Memories’, we are transported to another side of the metropolis – Ateya, a quaint low-rise apartment building. Filmmaker Mostafa Sheshtawy captures the memories of the community in the small complex, where he himself grew up, through interviews with his family and neighbours. As Doha continues to modernise rapidly, ‘Immortalizing Memories’ is as a reminder of the importance of community in any city.
