The Villaggio Fire Documentary.

The Villaggio Fire Documentary.

Hello Readers, 

My dear friend Sarah Al Derham contributed to this video about the Villagio Fire and I would like to share it with you all. This event was so tragic and sad, and the video was a great thing to do. For those who don't know about the event, a fire had started in Villaggio mall,Qatar and killed and injured a lot of children. Everyone came together to support those who had lost loved ones.

''This is a documentary made by the people of Qatar, for the people of Qatar. Brought together by a few students and friends. The reason why this documentary was made is because there were a lot of complaints on the day of the fire that the media in Qatar was not broadcasting or talking about it. Also, to call upon people that matter in this country, and urge them to take safety issues more seriously.
This short documentary was shot and made within 52 hours of the fire actually happening (28th-31st May). The delay of the upload was due to many technical difficulties the team faced and translation.
Special thanks to the crew that worked, helped, supported, offered footage, translated, edited, animated, and put together this documentary.
Latifa Al-Darwish, Abdullah Al-Khalaf, Sarah Al-Derham, Salman Al-Mohannadi, Sara Al-Saadi, Fahad Al-Kuwari, Fatma Al-Nasr, Haya Al-Mannai, Yara Darwish, Yasser Masood, Mouza Al-Derham, Zahed Bata, Usama A.H.
PS, we know the sound is very bad and camera is a bit shaky in some scenes. Please bare in mind that everything was shot in two days using only iPhones and one 5D. We tried to get as much footage while peoples' opinions were still fresh in their minds."


Support and prayers go out to all the families.

See you tomorrow!
