Underground Youth

Egypt / 2021 / Experimental / 05:35 min

Between multiple locations in Cairo: a local wedding, metro stations and a private contemporary dance studio, the movie documents how we see our beloved city. We dived deeper into the heart of Cairo, observing brutalism, love, loneliness and joy. At the end, we are asking everyone a serious question: does life really go on?
