Synopsis

The majlis is an important element of many Qatari households. In this short documentary, we are taken into the heart of the women’s majlis to explore the history of these gathering spaces, and how they have evolved in recent times. Modern Qatari women talk about how their majlis are rooms of empowerment, where discussions range from family issues to business concerns. Step into ‘Her Majlis’ and learn more about this rich tradition.
