“We chose the falcon's point of view to provide a profound and authentic perspective for viewers to explore Qatar,” stated Berthold Trenkel, Chief Operating Officer of Qatar Tourism. “A symbol of endurance and valour, the falcon takes us on an unparalleled adventure through the country’s beautiful natural, historic and modern structures that form Qatar’s unique hospitality offering.”
