September 18 Sunday - September 25 Sunday

Qatar Expat Women — Monday

Why are some people able to embrace the challenges of expat life, while others are angry, resentful, lonely and longing to go back home?

Resilience is described as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma tragedy, threats, or even significant sources of stress — such as family and relationship problems, serious health challenges, or workplace and financial stressors.

People who have resilient behavioral strategies are able to “bounce back” quicker from difficult experiences than those who don’t practice resilience.

Discover what makes the difference and learn some simple tips to successfully manage the challenges of expat living.

Join Jeanine Bailey and Marie Quigley: expats, professional certified coaches and founders of Empower World coaching and training as they share their experiences, strategies and tips for creating resilience in an expat world.

Caramel (Sukkar banat) — Thursday 

Nadine Labaki’s internationally acclaimed debut feature, ‘Caramel’ was instantly hailed on its release for depicting a contemporary Beirut that had seldom been seen on the big screen – not a tense, ravaged metropolis torn to shreds by a lengthy civil war, but rather one where citizens face mundane problems (like being stopped by the police for not wearing a seatbelt), alongside life’s rather larger issues. Check out the film this weekend!

North by Northwest — Friday 

To follow up his dark and brooding ‘Vertigo’ (1958), Alfred Hitchcock delivered the rather more lighthearted ‘North by Northwest’, a romantic thriller centred on a case of mistaken identity. The film provides plenty of room for Cary Grant to showcase his particular brand of comic debonair as he suavely sidesteps one life-threatening situation after the next, all the while smitten by a smoldering Eva Marie Saint. Enjoy the film at Katara this weekend at Katara!

Landscape in the Mist (Topio stin omichli) — Friday 

Young Voula and her five-year-old brother Alexandros board a train from Athens bound for Germany, in search of their father, whom they have never met. Over the course of this coming-of-age road trip through Greece, the two determined youngsters will learn several of life’s lessons – some of them rather harsher than others. To catch more of the story, watch the film at Katara this weekend!

Ran — Saturday 

In a decades-long career marked by a series of celebrated epic films, ‘Ran’ is generally considered to be director Akira Kurosawa’s crowning achievement – indeed, when asked to name his own best film, or so the story goes, Kurosawa’s response was invariably “my next one” – until, that is, he had made ‘Ran’. Watch the film this weekend at Katara!
