8 Billion (8 Billion)
Made in Qatar - Doha Tribecca Film Festival 2012
Set in the slightly surreal world of Doha, a city of expatriates, amid a landscape of luxurious lifestyles, in ‘8 Billion’, two young people find that they are not only lost in an unfamiliar culture far from their families but, more significantly, they are lost in their own self-inflicted isolation.
