If you’ve had enough of party Thursdays, kick back this weekend with some culture. As part of the Ajyal Film Series screenings, Doha Film Institute Cinema will be showing two distinctive films at MIA Auditorium. This annual film screened festival offers opportunities to catch up with trend-setting films for local audiences and the two films being shown tomorrow stand out for their narrative style and creative approach to story-telling.

On October 4 at 6pm, Walls (2017) directed by a Qatar-based talent Nibu Vasudevan, will be screened followed by a Q&A session with him. This animation film is set in a decaying world that has become nothing more than a trash heap. Here, a race of skeleton-like, robotic creatures are engaged in a pointless, seemingly endless war.

Following the screening and the Q&A, A Little Princess (USA/1995), directed by the renowned Alfonso Cuarón will be screened. A charming, critically acclaimed children's fantasy, A Little Princess tells the story of 10-year old Sara Crewe, who has been left in a respected New York City boarding school while her British father heads overseas to fight. If you didn’t already know, Cuarón is best-known for films such as Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
QR25 (QR20 for students and Culture Pass holders). Oct 4, 6pm onwards. MIA Auditorium, Museum of Islamic Art. For tickets, visit the DFI Ticket Outlet across the auditorium or
