Amal Ramsis: “Forbidden” film screening and Q&A

October 22, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Three months before the January 25th uprising, Amal Ramsis began shooting her first scenes in the streets of Cairo, exploring the very meaning of the word “forbidden,” which punctuates many forms of Egyptian daily life even as it remains incomplete and contested. The revolution comes on the last day of editing this film to provide answers to many of the questions that the film raises.

Join Amal Ramsis for a screening of her documentary, Forbidden, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.
