Caravan comes from the ancient Middle East to describe a procession of travelers on camel back—a concept that has evolved into present day traffic routes.
In a lyrical relay of thoughts, this film narrates the stream of consciousness flowing through a cross-section of Qatari society. In the suspended time and space of a Doha traffic jam on reclaimed land, a random group of people create a temporary urban society—a metaphor for the largely transient countries of the Gulf.
PLEASE NOTE THIS FILM WILL BE ENGLISH SUBTITLED
