Forum Des Images - My Family Tree! (Sacrée Familia!)
Special Screening - Ajyal Film Festival 2018
Ajyal is delighted to once again welcome Forum des Images to present the Qatar premiere of their wonderful cine-concert - ‘My Family Tree’.
These five short films reveal what brings members of families together: the memory of happy moments spent with your loved ones, the joy of passing down a legacy to children. Parents, grandparents, children…all of them form a family tree that extends its branches through time. A journey through generations filled with tenderness and emotion.
The series will be accompanied live by musicians Alexandre Korovitch, Romain Fleury, Paul Lepicard, Frédéric Marillier, Paul Manfrin and is sure to please film and music enthusiasts alike.
