Documentary: JUST ANOTHER DAY IN EGYPT


Switzerland/Serbia
2015
Arabic (Egyptian)

It’s Cairo in 2014, three years after the start of the Arab Spring and Egypt’s Revolution. Former Army Chief Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is elected, a win that is heavily criticised by international organisations. The people of Cairo are tired and disappointed. They no longer have faith in a democratic future for their country and much of their revolutionary enthusiasm has disappeared. As never before, their country is divided.

*note: this film is not available in Egypt.
