2019 - EG - FEATURE DOCUMENTARY - 95 min

A mother and her daughter explore together four generations of women from the same family – an Egyptian family, originally from the Levant, where life and cinema have always been intrinsically linked.

This is an intimate story told between family archives where reality and fiction interplay, and the autobiographical films of Youssef Chahine. From Alexandria to Cairo, passing by Paris and Havana, a mother and daughter take us on a personal journey, both visceral and visual, as they question their emotions and destinies.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Marianne Khoury led by SAFAR curator Rabih El-Khoury.
