‘The Autism Ordeal’ (2016), a documentary by Egyptian journalist Noha El-Hennawy, will screen at NVIC (The Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo) on 28 February, followed by a Q&A session with El-Hennawy.

In the ‘The Autism Ordeal’, “mothers of autistic children tell their stories, taking viewers on a journey to explore the world of autism, and expressing genuine fears of a murky future in an intolerant society,” reads the statement on the event’s Facebook page.

NVIC had hosted El-Hennawy in October 2015, and screened her documentary titled ‘Ibnak National Am International’ (2013) in which she examined the phenomenon of international schools in Egypt.

7.30pm, Sunday, 28 February  
NVIC Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo, 1 Dr Mahmoud Azmi Street, Zamalek
