Egyptian cinema has had a long history of strong female characters; every decade has its own stars, and through time, we see the development of Egyptian women, and how they go from strength to another. Going down memory lane will suffice, it will show you the different eras and the characteristics of each one, but if you’re memory is not helping you that much, this video will.
Cinematology, a Facebook page devoted to Egyptian cinema, released a video showcasing Women in Egyptian Cinema & TV. It showed the struggles, the heroism, and the victories of some of the best female characters in Egypt’s films and TV Shows. Take a look for yourself.
We love how the video took us through the ages, depicting the different views of women, at the same time showing the negatives and the positives. The powerful images resonated even stronger, with perfectly written lines that remain iconic in Egyptian, and perhaps Arab, cinema.
Movies are beautiful, they’re like time capsules that remain preserved forever, reminding us of days passed, and showing us how far we’ve come.
