Synopsis

Ahmed Al-Jaber is a Doha-based, self-confessed artist. The retired policeman's "art" is his collection of intricately decorated cars and motorbikes which are adorned with flags, stickers, curtain rails, flashing lights and various other bling. His daily routine takes his creations from the garage to the streets of Doha—his contribution to what he describes as the work of art that is the Doha skyline. 'Al Muqanna3' paints an intimate portrait of Ahmed Al-Jaber, putting a name to the face that people recognize as the man with the crazy cars.
