Qatar: Beyond the Blockade

On June 5th, 2017, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Egypt imposed a blockade on Qatar - closing their land, air and sea borders with it - accusing it of funding "terrorism" and fomenting regional instability. 

The Saudi, Emirati and Bahraini governments told their citizens to return from Qatar. They also asked Qatari citizens who were visiting, studying or living in their respective countries, to leave for Qatar within 14 days.

This diplomatic move left Qatar partially isolated - economically, politically and culturally.

As this crisis continues without a solution, this film follows several people in Qatar to find out how they are facing up to life under blockade.
