Event Details:


Mata Mata: Stories About Football, Dreams and Life will screen on Wednesday and Thursday at 7pm at Museum of Islamic Art Auditorium.

Mata Mata is the Brazilian term for a ‘knockout match’: A do-or-die, win-or-go-home battle — sometimes a metaphor for life.

The film chronicles ups and downs in the lives of talented young Brazilian players in their pursuit of success. Brazil is the largest exporter of football players worldwide and the film gives viewers an insight into how a football star is born.

Jens Hoffmann, German Director and Cameraman known for his commercials and sport films, made the documentary that combines his passion for storytelling, sports and filmmaking. The Brazil Cinema Showcase is presented by DFI each month in partnership with Qatar Museums as one of the cultural initiatives that make up the year-long celebration of relations both countries.

Tickets are priced at QR35 for adults and QAR25 for students on presenting valid student ID. Tickets can be purchased at Museum of Islamic Art DFI ticket outlet, across MIA Auditorium
