The Waiting Room

Directed by Hend Fakhroo

  • Qatar 2016; 25 min

  • From the director of BEHIND CLOSED DOORS presented at Doha Film Institute Qumra


Two families from two different backgrounds find themselves sharing a room at a hospital’s ICU. Separated by a thin curtain, two young women share the same hopes and struggles as they each deal with a parents’ illness. Through the monotony of hospital routine and a roller coaster of emotion, the two women forge a connection as they wait.
