Fast cars, expensive falcons and pet leopards - welcome to Yuri Ancarani's Saudi Arabia

In Yuri Ancarani's feature length debut, the audience is transported to the deserts of Saudi Arabia where a group of wealthy sheikhs have gathered to show off their newest cars and most expensive falcons. This is a world where falcons are status symbols which are transported by private jets and Lamborghinis zoom across the dunes with pet leopards in the passenger seat. Not a documentary so much as a frenetic mirage of bizarre and inexplicably engrossing imagery, THE CHALLENGE is a gloriously confusing and fascinating film that defies classification.
