Caravan

Caravan comes from the ancient Middle East to describe a procession of travelers on camelback—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 in a reclaimed land zone, a random group of people create a temporary urban society through subconscious communication.
