In Search of a City (in the Papers of Sein)
A journey through Cairo, led by the voice of a contemporary 'flâneuse' Sein. Her journey leads through the age-old streets, through colonial districts modeled on Paris to new apartments in international style. Inspired by the relationship and history between local and foreigner and using voices from the past and present, the film shows how the city is repeatedly reborn to become the megalopolis it is today.

Directed by Hala Elkoussy, 2012, Egypt, 21 min., drama, Arabic.

Two neighbors, a garden and no words exchanged. What happens when interests clash, and lines are crossed?

Directed by Maha Haj, 2009, Israel, 6 min.
