Each month this year Doha Film Institute has been partnering with the British Council to bring the best of UK cinema to Qatar, in honor of Qatar UK 2013. This month we are offering a couple of titles sure to delight the family. Join us at the Museum of Islamic Art auditorium!
Screening on Thursday and Friday at 7pm is Attack the Block:
Monsters from outer space land in a council estate in South London during Guy Fawkes celebrations and soon it’s up to Moses and his ragtag coterie of young street thugs to save the world from extraterrestrial domination. But when the neighbourhood ganglord – not to mention the local teen girls with attitude – get involved, conquering the interplanetary invaders becomes a whole lot more complicated. From the producers of the wildly successful cult comedies ‘Hot Fuzz’ and ‘Shaun of the Dead’, Joe Cornish’s wildly popular ‘Attack the Block’ is a clever send-up of the alien invasion genre – it’s hilarious with a heart.
Screening Friday and Saturday at 4pm is 3 of Wallace and Gromit's best short films:
Wallace, the amicable, bumbling inventor and cheese enthusiast, and his long-suffering, faithful and astonishingly intelligent companion Gromit the dog always seem to land in some kind of trouble. If they’re not being duped by the dastardly penguin jewel thief Feathers McGraw in ‘The Wrong Trousers’, they’re in danger of being turned into dog food by a sheep-rustling bulldog in ‘A Close Shave’, or blasted to kingdom come by a former beauty queen in ‘A Matter of Loaf and Death’. The duo’s hilarious antics in these wonderfully clever animated shorts will have audiences gasping, cheering and rolling in the aisles.
