The Challenge
First screened in August 2017
Director: Yuri Ancarani. Documentary about Qatari sheikhs who engage in falconry competitions.

Twitter Capsule: Unique images, but the film's elliptical approaches to story and montage ultimately feel like limiting affectations.

VOR:   Fans of atypical approaches to documentary might be galvanized by this. Certainly I haven't seen these spectacles before. But is it new, or valuable?
