Cairo Cinema Days: Zawya Officially Kicks Off the 4th Edition of the Indie Arab Movie Festival
Zawya is kicking off the 4th Edition of Cairo Cinema Days today with a line-up that is hard to overlook. Continuing until March 30th, the indie film festival will showcase contemporary independent films and documentaries by filmmakers from across the Middle East.
From prophetic curses in a Sudanese village and the struggles of motherhood in times of conflict, to the concept of identity and the search for a homeland, the films featured in the festival express the complex dynamics of the world we live in today.
A global paradigm shift is in full swing and we can all feel it, whether it’s in the form of anxious depression, an early-onset mid-life crisis, or just plain old confusion, we’re all in the same boat and we’re all struggling. This is where the arts come in; they are the mirror through which we can safely see ourselves and our world, away from any fears of possibly turning to stone.
The festival is well worth attending for anyone in Cairo this month, with some really amazing stories being told by some amazing storytellers.
