Saratan El-Asr El-Gedeed (Cancer of the New Era), a film by scriptwriter and director Ibrahim El-Awam about female homosexuality in Egypt, will be released soon.
"The film addresses the phenomenon of homosexuality among girls, which proliferates due to the high rate of spinsterhood," El-Awam says.
He points out that the film discusses the phenomenon in a scientific manner, examines causes and treatments, and does not include any explicit scenes.
The film stars Shahira Kamal, Amal Dawoud, Turkish actor Mohammed Issa, Aida El-Nakeeb, and Amr Mohammed, among others.
The film is produced by Mohamed Ibrahim Issa and Ibrahim El-Awam, who was previously honoured at the Moscow Film Festival.
The premiere will be at the Marrakesh Film Festival.
