The story of ‘Places Of The Soul’ follows Qatari filmmaker, Hamida on a journey to Antarctica with an environmental and leadership expedition. The beauty and heartbreaking realities of the worlds most untouched nature was an immensely life changing experience. This leads her to exploring Qatar through a renewed lens, in search of sustainability in her cultural history and the roots of her identity. At the heart of the film is the juxtaposition of two landscapes: the ice desert of Antarctica and the sand desert of Qatar. It is an exploration of duality - between modernity and tradition and nature and civilisation. It is expressed through the eyes of a young woman searching for the places that replenish her soul and a way to inspire change within herself.
