As I Want

كما أريد

Egypt, Norway, France, Palestine, Germany, 2021, 88 '

Alqadi tells us about the Egyptian revolution from a new and disruptive perspective, that of the women who from 2011 onwards have struggled to change their country; a resolutely political film that uses cinema as a weapon to disarm the oppressors and rebel against patriarchal violence rooted in society.

The event is finished.
