Within a few decades Qatar has gone from a Bedouin lifestyle to being one of the richest countries in the world. This expansion has happened so quickly that the old style of life can be seen all around, contrasted by the new hustle and bustle of a cosmopolitan city.

This video focused on a few key areas of change in culture to try and show the contrasts of life that have happened over the recent decades.

Shot on a Canon 7D, graded with magic bullet looks.

Music - "As time goes by" Blackmill and "midnight city" M83.

By Kearnsy• 3 years 8 months ago.

"Cosmopolitan - having interest in or familiar with many parts of the world"
