Souad

Cutdown

Client: BFI
Dir. Ayten Amin

In a small city on the Nile Delta, 19 year old Souad leads a double life. Conservative and veiled in public, online she obsesses over her appearance and embarks on secret virtual romances.

Featuring astonishing performances from a cast of non-professionals, the film  acutely examines the contradictions of teenage life in contemporary Egypt and the challenges of combining traditional values with social media.
