The White Hell

Directed by Ahmed Assem, Mahmoud Khaled & Omar Shash, 14 min, Short Documentary, in Arabic with English subtitles, Egypt, 2018

This could be one of the most dangerous and deadly workplaces in Egypt. Hazards include the stone-cutters and drivers speeding through clouds of white dust which infiltrates the lungs, turning normal tissue into fibrosis, thereby reducing the workers breathing capacity. There are about 35,000 workers suffering from severe working conditions, all for a very small amount not exceeding 50 Pounds per day, which equals almost 4 Dollars.

The film has received the Jury Prize at the Short Documentary Competition at Ismailia Film Festival.
