Qatar Foundation (QF) is set to host a talk by Al Jazeera documentary filmmaker, Tamer Almisshal, at Qatar National Library on Sunday, May 13.

Almisshal will talk about his film, The Hidden Is More Immense, which explores the foiled coup attempt in Qatar in 1996. During the discussion, which is open to the public, Almisshal will shed light on his experiences during the making of the documentary. An open floor Q&A session will follow the talk. Mrs. Mayan Zebeib, Chief Communications Officer, QF, said: “We are delighted to be hosting Tamer Almisshal. This event is just one example of how we, at Qatar Foundation, constantly strive to provide access to knowledge and information, and, in doing so, work to foster social engagement among the local community. This event is an opportunity to facilitate thought-provoking discussions and encourage critical thinking, while challenging claims, decisions, and assumptions.”
