Desert Haze, a documentary by award-winning Belgian filmmaker Sofie Benoot, will screen at the Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo (NVIC) on 3 April.

Released in 2014, the documentary is centred on the American West and “tells the many-layered story of human presence in the American desert through a mosaic of stories which merge into a chronicle of a country at the crossroads of present and past, myth and reality,” reads the event description on Facebook.

Benoot’s repertoire comprises important documentaries like Blue Meridian and Fronterismo.

Sunday 3 April, 7:30pm
Netherlands-Flemish Institute in Cairo (NVIC), 1 Dr Mahmoud Azmi Street, Zamalek, Cairo
