Synopsis

Abdulaziz – nicknamed Temsah (Arabic for ‘crocodile’) – is driven to express himself through drawing and painting, which has resulted in ‘Skanwah’, the first comic book created in Qatar. ‘Temsah’ follows Abdulaziz as he prepares to visit a comic convention in Dubai, where he hopes to find a publisher for ‘Skanwah’. Along the way, he discusses his life and experiences in Qatar, his inspiration and his hopes for the future.
