Event Details:


Disconnect, which stars Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman, will be screened next month as part of Katara DFI Cinema which brings the best of international cinema to audiences in Doha.

Directed by Henry Alex Rubin, the film will be screened at Katara Drama Theatre, Building 16 from May 9 to 15.

This gripping thriller premiered at the 69th Venice Film Festival and had its North American Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year.

Disconnect is the tale of a teenage loner and talented musician, who is bullied by his peers. A man loses his savings; his wife is a victim of identity theft. A journalist puts her interview subject in danger and all of this happens online. The Internet now connects millions of us to each other at the mere click of a mouse, but what happens if those connections don’t turn out the way we predict they will? ‘Disconnect’ takes a look at the underside of the Internet, wondering what might be the consequences of sharing too much about ourselves with people we don’t know enough about.

For tickets, Box Office timings and full films listing log in to or visit the DFI Ticket Outlet in Katara, Building 26, from May 5 to 15 between 1pm and 7pm. The Katara Drama Theatre Ticket Outlet (Katara Building 16) will be open from May 9 to 15, 30 minutes prior the day’s first screening start time.
