The Challenge

The Challenge Release Date: September 8, 2017

Focused on the world of wealthy Qatari sheikhs with a passion for amateur falconry, The Challenge combines cinematic beauty with rare access and trailblazing form. Here, the opulence of Qatar is on full display, as the men race SUVs up and down sand dunes, fly their prized falcons around on private jets, and take their pet cheetahs out for desert spins in their souped-up Ferraris.

The result is jaw-dropping film, not only for its displays of wealth, but for the original, cinematic approach that won Ancarani the Filmmaker of the Present award at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival.
