English

Cairo As Seen by Chahine
A portrait of a city by a filmmaker passionately engaged with its past, present, and future.


Chahine mixes documentary and fiction to create a portrait of Egypt’s bustling capital and a major center of the Arab world. The view of Cairo that emerges is a chaotic jumble of poverty, overcrowding, opulence and surging religious intolerance that results in a kaleidoscopic image recalling silent-era « city symphonies » and Fellini’s « Roma ».

Directed by Youssef Chahine.
