Khaled El Hagar, 125 min, Drama, in Arabic with English subtitles, Egypt, 2016
Followed by a discussion with the director Khaled El Hagar

A tragic story of betrayal, oppression and murder. The film explores the events of the 25 January 2011
revolution in an unconventional way.

Four characters live on a remote farm, away from the actual crisis, and no actual real-time images of the
revolution are shown. However, the events taking place at the farm reflect what is happening in the country.

The main character, Fatma, represents the struggle of Egyptians. She is torn between tradition - portrayed by her husband Hassan, the guardian of the farm - and a need for rebellion and renewal - represented by her lover Ali, Hassan's cousin, who escaped from prison - and the corruption and greed of the rich elite - symbolized by the owner of the farm, Mourad.

The film has won several awards including Best Film and Best Actress at Porto International Film Festival in Portugal as well as Best Actress, Best Sound and Best Art Direction at The National Film Festival in Egypt.
