Synopsis

Ghassan Hajar has lived in Doha for over 50 years. An avid collector of antiques, he opens his heart and famous green door to share with us some of the incredible pieces he has collected over the years. Unfortunately, his home-turned-exhibit has not been doing as well of late, due to the public's growing interest in more modernity, as well as admittedly not having done enough to bring the public's attention to the antiques that he sells.
