DJECA (CHILDREN OF SARAJEVO)

Synopsis: Rahima and Nedim are orphans of the Bosnian war. They live in Sarajevo, a transitional society that has lost its moral compass, including in the way it treats children of the people who were killed fighting for the freedom of their city. After crime-prone adolescent years, Rahima has found comfort in Islam and she hopes her brother will follow in her footsteps.

JEWS OF EGYPT

Invitations only

Synopsis: 'Jews of Egypt' is a documentary that captures fragments of the lives of the Egyptian Jewish community in the first half of the twentieth century until their second grand exodus after the tripartite attack of 1956. It is an attempt to understand the change in the identity of the Egyptian society that turned from a society full of tolerance and acceptance of one another and how it changed gradually by mixing religious and political views into a society that rejects the others. This is a film about the cosmopolitan Egypt in the 40s and Egypt in the new millennium. How did the Jews of Egypt turn in the eyes of Egyptians from partners in the same country to enemies?

Country: Egypt
