A film by A.J. Al Thani.
Out in the beautiful quiet of the desert, a man teaches his young sons how to track and hunt. Frustration leads to an apparently harmless struggle between the two brothers – but their carelessness brings about sudden disaster. Qatari filmmaker A.J. Al Thani’s film strikes just the right balance of calm and calamity, adolescence and adulthood, knowhow and panic to tell a seemingly simple story with a sense of gravity that will echo with anyone who has seen an innocent plan go horribly wrong.

Sophia Al - Maria's 'Black Friday'
For her first solo exhibition in the United States, Sophia Al-Maria tapped The Film House to help realize her Black Friday fever dreams. The show featured a 16 minute film (Black Friday) displayed vertically protruding from a mound of sand which was crawling with broken glass and 113 unique videos (Litany) on portable devices.
The show ran from July 26th to Oct 31st, 2016 at The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with the artist (and BFF of TFH). We look forward to producing more work together in the near future.

We had the pleasure of making an important film for Interpol.

A series, Aqila, borne from the film we made for Interpol, is currently in script development.

The story of ‘To the Ends of the Earth’ begins in Argentina and follows an environmental expedition to Antarctica, exploring the hope of individuals to contribute positively to their communities. The journey continues to the Arabian Gulf, in search of inspiring characters who are working toward environmental change. Antarctica serves as a beautiful reminder of what we once were, and contrasts with the rich cultural tapestry of the Gulf and those who are united in their dedication to sustainability and hope for our future. At the heart of the film is the juxtaposition of two deserts: Antarctica and Arabia; ice and sand.
