‘Black Gold’ stars at Doha film festival

Desert epic was partly filmed in Qatar in first for Gulf state’s nascent film industry.

The Oscar-winning director Jean Jacques Annaud is one of dozens of filmmakers attending this year’s Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Doha.

Much of his latest movie, Black Gold, was filmed in the south of Qatar, a first for the country and hopefully the beginning of more such ventures in the Gulf region.
